 RubyThe QueenSnapshots 

 

MARPHILART is the name of the exhibition where Phillippa is showing with Marcella Worthington at Southbanks Printmakers Gallery, Unit 12, Gabriel's Wharf, 56 Upper Ground SE1 9PP.

The exhibition opens on April 15th and runs to April 28th. The Gallery is open Sunday to Friday 11.30 to 6.30 pm and on Saturdays, from 10 to 7 pm. 

We will be showing prints, both silkscreen and etchings. 

 

 Solo show "Heads and Tales"  2013 where the double faced heads of David Cameron and Nick Clegg were on view, slowly rotating at the Sprout Gallery, 74 Moyser Road, Furzedown, SW16 6SQ.  The cake heads were cut up on Saturday 15 June. Prints, paintings and a video about previous cake head events were also on display. 

In 2012 Phillippa's show at the Sprout featured the Queen's Cake Head, as well as the heads of Kate and William and David Beckham and was entitled "Twenty-twelve." The Queen's Cake Head was cut up by Alun Armstrong, the actor.

The first time she showed at the Sprout gallery  was in 2011 "The Viewed and the Edible"    The exhibition ran from March 22nd to April 9th. Prints, paintings and three cake heads were on view. The heads were of Saddiq Khan, at that time Tooting MP, Ed Miliband (then the Labour leader) and the Colonel Gaddafi before his demise. Gaddafi's head was raffled and Saddiq sportingly cut his own cake head. 

   "Walk and Talk the Urban Space." was organised by Phillippa and showed her work along with three other Wandsworth artists in 2011 at the Gallery, 77 Cowcross St. London  She also took part in the Surrey Open in June 2011 and in 2012 but not 2013. She  shares her studio with ten other artists. 

Her most recent showing was the exhibition of Donald Trump Cake Head at Hackney Wick. Nasty Women Group had a free exhibition on. It was a surprisingly relaxed exhibition. Before that, Phillippa had shown in a couple of exhibitions at the Brick Lane Gallery. 

Wandsworth Artists Open House weekends 2017 has been and gone. Donald Trump was my chosen head for the Open House. He was first displayed at the Nasty Women's exhibition in Hackney Wick, then raffled and the winner duly spoke a few words before plunging the knife in on October 15th. He was devoured. 

Another head has been baked and sculpted, this time of a woman who deserves to be better known. Her name is Charlotte Despard, 1844-1939 a suffragist - the founder of the Women's Freedom League, a socialist who lived in the Battersea Nine Elms area, setting up a working men's club, youth club, clinic and organised soup kitchens in the time of heavy unemployment and was an ardent supporter of Irish independence. From today she is being displayed at Battersea Arts Centre, will be shown as part of London Art Night on July 7th and will then be doing the rounds of libraries here in Wandsworth.
