Artist Carl Scrase shares O.W.L.’s fondness for free postcards, but has a slightly more kaleidoscopic approach than our recent show-and-tell. Perhaps this is how to make something of all those less than imaginatively designed cards advertising mobile phones? A vast improvement.
Carl Scrase – Hallucinatory Facade

Carl was one of the artists in Next Wave’s House Proud series of exhibitions earlier this year, where each artist created a temporary installation in an art-minded volunteer’s house – a fantastic concept, albeit made somewhat less accessible by the disparate exhibition spaces. Lazy art lovers like myself were rewarded (or perhaps reprieved) last weekend at the Art Fair, with a showcase of the House Proud works. Although they undoubtedly would’ve been stunning in situ, I was glad to have seen them. As often happens, having that reprieve made me swear never to miss an exhibition again.
