My exhibition setup at Sexpo

My exhibition setup at Sexpo

Thursday night, 12th November I arrived at Olympia in London to start setting up my exhibition. There are four artists along the gallery area, 2 I don’t know and the other is Ken Clarke. We’re in a great position, just near the entrance where you come in.

I unloaded the car and arrived in the gallery area. The walls were up but that was all. The whole setup had been delayed as the PM from India was visiting London and loads of streets were closed, causing gridlock in loads of places around parliament. As a result the carpets were delayed by about 4 hours which had a knock on effect with everyone else.

The fitters came round to start fitting the white backing boards, which is a nice change from the normal black we get at Erotica. We plumbed for a red skirting board, as they were going to fit that to the top as a pelmet but it would cut down useful hanging space. One of the nice things about the layout is there is a 1 metre gap between each artist which will form a visual break so customer’s don’t get confused about where one stand stops and another one starts.

After a few trial layouts along my 6 metre run I settled with 2 large framed prints at each end along the top row. The gap in the middle would be filled with mounted prints.

Two prints up!

Setup completed and 40 or so prints up on the wall. A few more signs and banners to go up, along with a bin of sale prints to reduce my stock a little, but the main part of the job is done.

Da-Da! All done.

New Prints for Sexpo

Loads of new prints for Sexpo exhibition

I’m pleased to be doing another major exhibition and as a result I’ve pulled together a collection of new prints that will be for sale. I don’t like putting out the same work everytime at an exhibition, people like to see your latest or new work that’s not been on public display before.

Sexpo is a brand new exhibition so I’m not sure what to expect. I pulled together a range of prints, many of Ariel Anderssen as she will be helping me out on my stand for the 3 days, as well as images of Emma Green and Harmony Reigns as they are both at the show too. But there’s a wide range of styles and content. I’m never really sure what will sell and what won’t.

Below are a small collection of some of the new images that will be on display at Sexpo. They were taken on my iPhone as I mounted the prints so they are not great quality! They also have a tendency to display in the incorrect orientation for some bizarre reason, they look okay in the WYSIWYG preview and then rotate when you view them in the browser.

If you’re at the show then do drop by my stand in the gallery area and say hi.
