Less than a week til the Dulwich ACEO show

... did someone say "What's an ACEO?"

I'm sure they did... WELL....

ACEO = Art Cards, Editions & Originals.
But don't be fooled, ACEOs aren't cards like you buy for birthdays and bereavements... these are wonderfully varied miniature works of art.
Measuring just 3.5"x2.5" this is art for your pocket, your wallet, your intimate spaces - you can curate your own 19th Century-style French Salon in the smallest of rooms at a budget which even artists can afford (well sometimes...).

There is a second generation of these art cards which sometimes break out of the strict size format and grow as big as 6" - these are known as ATC2s and give you the chance for a bit of variety in that amazing red roomed annual show you are planning.

CLick on some of the artists whose links are over on the right there - they do these miniatures too and I guarantee you'll be impressed.

I'm branching out, with some ACEO/ATC2 style sculptures too. Tiny one-off wild creatures to nestle in unexpected places. I don't know yet where I'm going with these. I fancy pure wire forms, and maybe some papier mache too...

This stern faced chappy is 2 inches tall (and - almost - laughing on the other side of his face).

Sal, I love your little sculpture (especially since he is half laughing almost)! Cool stuff:)

i love this! i especially love the way you did the teeth. and along the jawline, if you look quickly, it almost looks like a red box with a white "golden arches" - you know, mcdonald's? my favorite restaurant? yes, i know i AM pathetic and terribly unhealthy. i also see a tennis player more towards the chin in the jawline. it is a feast for the fancies!

I can't find that tennis player.... but the big M is scarey! Maybe I subliminally need a Filet o Fish.... it's been years y'know!

I will give you the other side of his face one day. If you're lucky.
