'Nudibranch' - Solo Exhibition at The Book Club, Shoreditch, London
I was invited to take over East London’s creative bar and event space, The Book Club, in Shoreditch. The exhibition was inspired by Nudibranchs, more commonly known as sea slugs, and included a mural room and a slug-ified ping pong table, plus a collection of prints, each inspired by a new member of the sea slug family.
‘Nearly three quarters of the earth is covered by ocean, producing the majority of the oxygen that keeps us alive. It’s the last great unexplored wilderness, home to countless creatures, including the wonderful world of Nudibranchs.
Some no bigger than your fingernail, others 12 inches long, they laze in shallow tropical waters, protecting themselves from their predators with their dazzling displays of poison-tinted patterns. They are miniature marine kaleidoscopes, soft in body but bold in colour.
As we come up for air after lockdown, I’d like to celebrate our colourful friends of the sea, their spots and stripes and luminous ripples - their curious, glorious ‘sluggishness’. I hope they will bring you joy and remind you of the importance of loving your softness and taking care of our precious oceans.’
