Dog Tooth. Chicken Feet.
"The world only goes round by misunderstanding." - Charles Baudelaire
An exhibition of artworks by David shillinglaw and Lily Mixe.
There’s a long history of artist couples making artwork together, sharing the same living and working space will always influence and be influenced by one another. At a certain point that exchange can become a more direct focus and begin to push and pull each others work in new directions, playing with new ideas and new materials. David and Lily met when David painted over one of Lily’s murals. From day one the artists have been working over each other’s pieces, sharing spaces, and on occasion making murals and installations together.
The artworks made for this show are all drawings, collages and assemblages. The works are remixes; cutting and pasting, destroying and creating things in a kind of game of dare, nothing is too planned or designed, the works have been made over months, growing like a garden of off-cuts and studio scraps. Deliberately cross pollinating and grafting ideas and materials, creating a condition for ideas and images to grow. At points the works are love letters to one another, at other times more like arguments.
The title for the exhibition comes from a conversation about a fabric pattern design which has two names, one in English: Dog tooth, and another in French: Chicken feet. A brief argument over which was the correct name quickly came to define a constant playful misunderstand between the two artists, this has become an obscure personal metaphor for how so often we can be guilty of debating two sides of the same coin.

Lovely local musician JAKL will be kicking off Sunday service with an acoustic performance of his upcoming album. Live music in a wine shop on a Sunday...
Margate based artist JAKL burst onto the scene as one of Glastonbury's emerging talents in 2016. His ethereal and emotionally raw music lead to several sold-out headline shows and radio support. After releasing 'Shadows' and touring Europe with Air Traffic, he ended last year by recording a live album at Hackney's Paper Dress Vintage.
Born into a family of musicians, his influences range from John Martyn, Bon Iver and Jeff Buckley to the music of his opera singing father. He has secured national radio airplay from a Huw Stephens session to Jo Good (XFM), BBC Introducing and BBC 6 Music. The upcoming album is to be released by Lookout Mountain Records in April.
