The Lost Army was an idea inspired by two different things, one being the lost Terracota Army found in China and Influenza's Art of Urban Warfare game.
I've always loved toy soldier's so cheap and easily available. I sprayed some up in a nice grey and wanted to leave them somewhere for people to find and maybe even wonder "Where did they come from?"
So with a bag of troops and my camera I set off for Shedocksley in the North of Aberdeen and set about arranging troops on a perfectly angled tree. Shedcocksley is the kind of area that you don't want to hang around too long after dark but I was lucky to catch an amazing sunset.
I went back a month later to see how thing's were looking and managed to save a few troops who had fallen into the leaf litter, the rest had disappeared. This was the first of many small interventions that I've done over the last year and will hopefuly be doing more soon.
Craig Barrowman, Brian Ross & Colin Robinson's group show at Limousine Bull in Torry, Aberdeen.
Another time lapse video using still images and speeded up video footage. I spent a week with the guys while they painted and re painted in the Limousine Bull space in Torry, Aberdeen.
Personal hightlights included hearing Heart of Gold by Neil Young on the radio one late night, seeing the 3 artists styles merge into one giant mural and rolling past Colin while he gave me the finger with a stern expression on his face.
10 Days of artist Annita Stewart squezzed into 10 minutes.
You'd think after 10 days with Annita I would be stir crazy but I actually had an amazing time. She really helped me see the value in what I was doing and also made me realise that I was getting the chance to hang out with new people.
I really enjoyed making the video for Neets, I was working on the video right up until her opening, I think she was still working on her exhibition until a few hours before the opening as well.
What seems like lines on the wall is actually a lot deeper and has some real thought behind it with regards ot the enviroment, money and greed!
Stuart Simpson is a Glasgow based artist who works in different print and paint based mediums. Stuart's work usually comprises his two favourite thing's, animals & people.
For this piece he decided to bust out another Rhino, the second one hes done. It was great to see Stu working on such a big canvas and the final piece was quite stunning. He looking to do commisions and will hopefully be taking part in some live drawing event's this summer!
Katie Guthrie is a local artist, painter, knitter and all round creative thinker.
For her first post art school show she decided to think big, 2 months, 500 balls of wool, 1 room! See the results for yourself.
Katie's work involves a very strong use of colour but also maintains a real fun aspect, why make art that makes you bored eh! I had such a blast working with Katie and was tempted to make a second video documenting her guns of steel, I dread to think how many hours she spent on the knitting maching, plowing it back and forth.
