TUESDAY 21 JULY 09 new art on the far wall MARK OBSTFELD 090721.opbstfeld.0055.png Some years of late night experiments with the images I collect in everyday life, these are a few of the results- the flipside of my work as a photographer. Originally inspired by the street art around Shoreditch before I ever lived here, I started to play with photos of grafitti and got more and more involved. Inspired also by the moment of wakefulness from sleep, when slivers of dream still remain in the mind, and with tongue planted very firmly in cheek, these are some results from hours of intense photoshopping. From overseas trips to the asphalt of London town, anything is a potential piece of art- once the idea forms, I am only limited by my own abilities. Everything displayed originally comes from a photograph.

Their notorious first release, 'War on Terror, the boardgame', was banned from the high street, branded 'sick' by the press and confiscated by the police. Now designers Andy Tompkins and Andrew Sheerin, together with illustrator Tom Morgan-Jones, are launching 'Crunch' to mark the collapse of our beloved financial system - and where better to celebrate than in the basement of a former bank? There will be games, prizes and plenty of extravagant waste. Come along and discover the up-side of the downturn. Music will be provided by DJ Paedophile Stepdad. http://www.crunchthecardgame.com/

Although they look like something you might stumble upon in a back room in Persia 1946, they have actually just flown from their fourth concert and are a breath of fresh squawks in these days of formatted music. 090731.gaggle1.640.jpg
SATURDAY 01 AUGUST 09 SLOW SOUND SYSTEM AND HIGHPOINT LOWLIFE RECORDS 6-11pm. Free entry Highpoint Lowlife records and the slow sound system take over upstairs at the Foundry this Saturday. On offer: future garage and bass explorations from the anonymous and hotly-tipped Spatial (infrasonics), plus jazz, Middle Eastern modes, electro-accoustics and ambient minimalism from John Farah (Dross:tik), worked out in real time on the Foundry's grand piano. HPLL and slow sound system DJs fill in the gaps. http://www.highpointlowlife.com http://www.slowoundsystem.net ------------------------------ ABOUT THE ARTISTS ------------------------------ ------- SPATIAL 'Exceptional post-Burial/future-garage productions ... '80207' is an absolutely killer slice of crisp and spacious garage dub progressions, sounding like the perfect union of Andy Stott's techno dub fixation crossbred with Burial's swung patterns and 2562's chrome plated production gloss, but adds old skool rave strafes and some cybotronic mechanics of his own for a truly shocking cut. The flipside numbered '70810' rewrites the formula even further. Starting with a El-B fashioned rhythmic framework, Spatial reinforces the rhythm with slashing brushstrokes to remove any unneccessary beats, and douses the whole thing with a ghostly atmosphere reminiscent of Burial or Andy Stott's finest. It's either the end of a vintage year for garage futurisms or the start of a very promising 2009, either way, this is just awesome.'

TUESDAY 04 AUGUST 09 new art in the library SHESH 090804.shesh-cowboy-repeat-2.jpg From music to fashion to visual arts, shesh spreads his message fusing and flipping several mediums including music, fashion and visual arts.? Taking inspiration from a wide variety or sources such as 1950s & 60s advertising, musical imagery, iconography & celebrity and comic book culture, the work examines the links between fashion, advertising, and urban graffiti art, all striving to be get fame with a view to being ubiquitous. In questioning and subverting the idea of fashion and branding, the work itself becomes the very subject matter it references. "Basically I like writing my name loads of times..." new art on the far wall JENNIFER NEW PAINTINGS (until 16 August) 090808.House-of-Jouis-Muitton-Close-up.jpg Intrigued by the glossy and alluring nature of high fashion and beauty advertising, and by society's embrace of this unattainableŠideal, I respond with a series of paintings inspired by these images. I simultaneously build and deconstruct these icons of perfection through the layering of paint, using the original photograph as the starting point, but deviating from it with abandon. While some details from the photograph are emulated, most others dissolve into chaotic and bold abstraction. My paintings are a journey away from the illusion of perfection, allowing the viewer to see what's not supposed to be seen. http://www.jenniferlouise.weebly.com opening night Thursday 6 August
