A few weeks ago I put a call out on the Arts Council England website for artist submissions, and have had an overwhelming response!
Thanks to all of the amazing artists who have sent in their bio and images! I have started reading through them all and responding to each, I appreciate your patience! I’m afraid I’ll need a bigger exhibition space? So many great artists to choose from! What an exciting conundrum!
I’m still looking for UK based tattoo artists, comic artists, and street / graffiti artists.. know any?
I did get one submission that was a little disheartening… the artist initially told me they were an amputee, and when I asked for more information the reply was “Er I’m very sorry, it was a joke. I know you are not supposed to joke about those kind of things but hey, everyone makes mistakes.”
This joke / attitude has reaffirmed to me WHY Spare Parts is so important – bringing prosthetics (and therefore amputees) into mainstream media, into the arts world, and into so many people’s lives for possibly the first time.
Spare Parts is about creating new art out of pre-loved prosthetics, and it’s also about breaking down barriers and creating a positive and open conversation. Prosthetics are fantastic life tools, and should be celebrated!
I look forward to sharing more with you about the world of prosthetics over the next few months, and building this website more and more; with artist profiles and photos of the prosthetics being donated… watch this space!
Have a great day!
