Jamie Radcliffe Exhibition Artwork

Here's my artwork for the Jamie Radcliffe exhibition, by Oliver Braid at SWG3 details below. "Loves Me, Loves Me Not, Daisy chain Medallions". Its a large scale installation containing several hundred Jamie R. medallions.. If you look closely, that's a medallion made up of 57 images of Jamie's head... Obsessive, Yah??!!

Still haven't decided on an artwork for HALLelujah!. It will probably be a wall drawing, from a projected image, but not exactly sure at this stage, taking it to the wire as usual.....

Jamie Radcliffe Exhibition by Oliver Braid opens Saturday 18th

Also as part of Glasgow Gallery Weekend, Lowsalt is pleased to announce:

Oliver Braid Presents Jamie Radcliffe: The Exhibition The Ultimate Romantic Gesture for One Night Only._
Saturday 18th April 2009, 6pm – 10pm
Studio Warehouse: 100 Eastvale Place, Glasgow

"Thanks for sending me the PP. Good luck with it. I still cannot understand you tho!! When all the world is racked with war and terror and hope for change, Why would you choose such a subject matter… You baffle me…do keep in touch tho." Tim Chamberlain, Invited Artist

This is an exhibition dedicated to Jamie Radcliffe, an upholsterer and part time footballer that I have been secretly in love with since I met him in a local pub when I was seventeen. Although we have rarely spoken, every time I go back to my home town at Christmas I think maybe this will be the time. I still can’t imagine that we won’t get married one day.

Whenever I was away from home I used to search MySpace and Facebook trying to find him and last August he finally appeared. I added him as a friend and waited for our virtual connection to blossom. Not only did he deny me, but he blocked me as well. I think he may have deciphered my not so subtle glances over the last seven years.

Luckily he didn’t deny or block my friend Sally and so it was with her login details that I began to be able to regularly visit his profile and keep watch on his life.

In January 2009 I produced a Power-Point presentation consisting of images and information I had taken from Facebook. I sent the Power-Point to 100 artists and asked them if they would be interested in producing an artwork based on Jamie, his life or my unrequited longing. Presented here are the works from all the artists who responded positively.

Artists Included: Simon Bayliss, Julie Burrows, Jon Burgerman, Aagje Buzink, Amelia Bywter, Celeste Carballo, Cordelia Cembrowicz, Kaifeng Chun, Matthew Collier, Alexis Dirks, Claire Dorsett, Caroline Douglas, Solveig Einarsdottir, Hannah Ellul and Ben Knight, Marc Elsner, Erica Eyres, Kitty Finer, Leo Fitzmaurice, Sarah Forrest, Patrick Gantert, Claire Greenshaw, Michelle Hannah and The Kingdom of Perpetual Muin, Ellie Harrison, Tom Harrup, Sean Hawkridge, Lena Henke, Anna Henson, Katharina Kiebacher, Paul Knight, Harry Lawson, Alice Maplesden, Amy Marletta/Patty Melt, Jack McLean, Alison Mellor, Jenny Moore Koslowsky, Shelly Nadashi, Christian Newby, Janie Nicoll, Sally Noall, Laurence Payot, James Price, Charlotte Prodger/Sophie MacPherson/Brina Thurston/ Kate Roberston, Paul Sammut, Rosemary Scanlon and Tytus Hardy, Peter Schoeffer, Maayke Schurer, Cheyenne Seeley, Anna Louise Shipley AKA Miss Shippers, Fiona Short, JP Somerville, Theodoris Stamatogiannis, Anna Tanner, Daren Tesar, Nancy Tomkins, Sally Tarbutt, Deniz Uster, Leah Watt, Daniel Simpkins and Penny Whitehead, Alberta Whittle, Emily Womack, Tobias Wootton, Jamie Wright, Burcu Yagcioglu.

HALLelujah! Artworks

Artworks from Ellen Burroughs "Bus Fare Evaders" part of a series of mugshots of petty criminals; and Alice Bradshaw, "Refuse".

Work arriving

Yesterday was a bit like Christmas as I received five packages containing artworks from various locations; Hondartza Fraga's drawings from Sheffield, Alice Bradshaw's sculpture form Halifax, Andrew Reynolds drawing from Birmingham, Ellen Burroughs small etched drawings from Leeds, and Olivia Irving's paintings from Edinburgh. Bootsie (my cat) did his best to sleep through the whole proceedings.... I've already received the panels for 'Milk Two Sugars', projection and all the video works. Other works are more site specific, so still to come are Alex Hetherington's LCD screen, Anna Francis 's assignment packs and fridge sculpture, Elizabeth Rowes collage works, Laurence Payot's interaction with Sparky, and my own piece which is still at the planning stages.. I think I will be making an artwork that reacts to the exhibition as a whole, last minute as ever......
