Ways To Escape

Ways To Escape” was a small mixed media exhibition at 2022NQ, a small gallery space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. The exhibition was only a week long (14th – 23rd March 2013) – I caught it on the last day and glad I did.  Above are my favorite works from the show, I love the neon ladder falling from the ceiling and the medical drip had headphones attached – which put you straight into a hospital bedside intensive care scenario!
Way’s To Escape featured 12 artists and was curated by Saoirse Higgins & Fabrizio Cocchiarella.

Raqib Shaw

Raqib Shaw

Raqib Shaw is an Indian-born, London-based artist who shot to fame in the international art world at the age of 33.
His opulent paintings and sculptures evoke the work of Old Masters such as Holbein and Bosch in their treatment of often unsettling subjects. But they also reflect the ornate style of Persian miniatures and Kashmiri and Japanese textiles. Beneath their beautiful jewel-like surface is a collection of dark and violent images inspired by ancient myths and religious tales from both East and Western tradition.

de Lacy X Bionic Seven

I have just began a collaboration with my Manchester stockist Bionic Seven, a boutique in Manchester’s Northern Quarter who sell hand picked vintage menswear. The idea was to create duffel bags from vintage Berghaus and Barbour Jackets.
The blue Berghaus duffel bag I have created is Gore-tex and has outer and internal zip pockets.
The second duffel bag, my favorite is upcycled using a Barbour “Border” waxed jacket. I decided to wash the jacket before taking it apart, I then re-waxed it after the pattern had been cut – it was then ready to be sewn. The Barbour classic check lining has been kept inside the bag and the original labels sewn back inside too. A great holdall which features 4 outer pockets and 2 internal.
Theses duffel bags are now available from Bionic Seven priced at £60 & £70 – Bargain. I may well also produce a luxury version of the Barbour bag for delacyonline.etsy.com with a leather strap & trim and a brand new Barbour style check liner.

Love this artist, many of his works seem to build themselves from single sheets of paper, a great transition from two – three dimensions. Click on his name more his website where you will find so quite amazing art works.
His next show will be at Galería Valle Ortí, Valencia, Spain.
