For Bronx Elf, Tim Roosen at the opening of the Strychin Gallery, London

(viewed 2634 times)
Bookmark and Share
Dropped in on the opening night of the Strychnin Gallery in East London on Friday, the opening exhibition, Kings and Queens and Childhood Dreams, had a couple of Bronx Elf's friend, Tim Roosen's artworks on display ... I met up with my sister (who lives locally) and went early, hoping to get the chance to see and photograph the exhibition ... however it filled up so quickly that I didn't get the opportunity to do either properly ....

1. Shhh .. The wasp queen wanted to keep this a secret ... but she failed ... The gallery was packed just half an hour after opening ... Wasp Queen by Virginie Ropars ...

2. On arrival

3. 'Royalty in Exile' one of two Tim Roosen artworks .... afraid I could not do it justice as it was hung very high up on the wall ...

4. The only shot I managed to get of Tim Roosen's other piece before the crowds descended ...

5. Close-up of the above .....

6. The crowd ....

7. I managed to grab a few minutes chat with the artist himself ...

Think you and D could make a trip of it .... a very 'mixed' exhibition, in my opinion .... happy to discuss it :)

MaggieD says:

Thanks Jane D, I do feel a little like a sham moblogger, I got involved through Neutropenic Alex, and just loved the positive vibe, and just stayed on and did my own thing (silly cartoons and doggeral) ... am not a photographer .... but hey, thanks for your comments :)

I echo Swamprose's comments, Moblog is an incredibly diverse scrapbook of ideas, styles, attitudes and people, which is what makes it so wonderful.

MaggieD says:

Carpe, I do own a camera, it's just that I don't use it very often :(

The wasp queen is a 3D model ......
