The (Anti) Valentine

Posters at Love Is Awesome, group show, February 2009, Gallery 10, St Mary’s Butts, Reading

Last year around this time of year I was working on the Love Is Awesome show, and I made these anti-Valentine’s-day cards in celebration and recognition of my (then) very Broken Heart.

I am feeling much more positive about Love this year than I was around this point last year, but I still maintain that Love is an awesome force – much greater and darker and gutsier than the pink and red schmaltz that is in all the shop windows at this time of year. And so the Love Is Awesome anti-Valentine’s day cards – in recognition of the fact that Love Is Awesome in the true sense of the word (i.e. to inspire Awe) – are on sale again this year for the princely sum of £10 per pack including P&P. All 9 cards were designed and photographed by me, they are printed on A5 300gsm card, and they come hand-packaged in a set with one of the original screen printed Love Is Awesome tags that we used all over the show when it was open last year at Gallery 10, in Reading.

  5. This is a fabulous website. I love the idea of domestic soundscapes. If you’re interested, please check out my personal blog (forgottenithaca.wordpress.com). We have lots of common ground between us: memory, place, and sound…
