Mostyn 13 @Oriel Mostyn, Llandudno

Some superb stuff (otherwise known as art) in this years exhibition, with entries from almost 500 entrants from as far afield as Canada & japan.
Stupidly for me I forgot my pen, again, but then I just wanted to wander and experience the art freely (a luxury such centres allow us).
Whilst there was a stunning shot (on large sheet aluminium) of a large rotting or rather slowly decaying log in the clearing of a London Wood set against a colourful, picturesque, could be anywhere, transport you away backdrop, filling an entire wall almost, you couldn’t help but be drawn toward the little room off to the side by the intruiging sounds and harmonies eradiating form it.
I sat for a while in there and watched most of the 5songs and accompanying primarily urban filmed footage, was intruiged and inspired.
Whilst at the other end of the complex/gallery, levitation did at least seem visibly possible. a continually edited and linked snap shot images from sections of film footage, demonstrated a man continually in the apex of his flight, some 8-12inches above a trampet, brilliant and though paperless, I had indeed forgotten to switch my phone off, B~**#R.
This broke my concentration and forced me to be very angry with myself, another luxury I can enjoy.
By the time you read this the ‘Mostyn 13’ show will be over and Paul Seawright’s ‘Hidden’ exhibition will have opened. Images of Afghanistan, post War, commissioned by the Imperial war Museum to ‘Record the aftermath of the conflict. In these haunting images the artist is less concerned with the visible scars of the war than with what lies hidden in the landscapes and buildings which bear them.’
Running throughout June until 5th July – This land is fascinating.

Breathe in! A tight fit in Bangor's nooks and crannies.

How did they do that
How did they do that?!
Keith Morris

A worldwide sensation which has toured Paris, Vienna and Moscow is now quite literally squeezed into Bangor.

Bodies in Urban Spaces aimed to help people experience urban architecture in a  new and unique way –  by squeezing into parts  of the city itself.

I first met Peter Kraus (who you see here tearing it up back in the day) walking down the street in the early eighties. At the time he was our milkman, and because he was keen to get his round finished so he could get on with one of his adventures later in the day he…

Fireworks – Sarah Louise Owen (single)

9th April 2013

I’m not sure quite when it happened but pop music has taken a real turn for the worse over the last decade.  It is now created by committee, teams of writers and producers undertaking market research to engineer the most marketable track. It is about spending millions on a video that shows scantily clad clothes horses writhing unconvincingly…

Sarah Louise Owen New Album 'Dreamcatcher' - Bluesbunny review

4th November 2012

Dream Catcher CD CoverArtist: Sarah Louise Owen

Album: Dream Catcher

Release Date: 25th November 2012

The female voice is a wondrous thing in my opinion. It can make more of even the most mundane lyrics than you could reasonably expect. Not that any of the lyrics on “Dream Catcher” are mundane – far from it – but Sarah Louise Owen…

One Human Seven Hurdles. Collaboration with Jelili Atiku

23rd September 2012

On the 12th August, 2012, the fantastic Jelili Atiku came to visit TOGYG, the artist group run by Bangor Greadigol, based at The Old Goodsyard, Treborth.  Jelili inspired us all with his enthusiasm and pulled performance pieces from even the most reticent of us. A true collaboration, where each artist expressed their individuality while still remaining but one part of a group.
