C&C promotes contemporary art for domestic living spaces. With this in mind we organise a Salon throughout the year – an installation of works we have available for sale, selected and installed in a home setting.
About Joni SmithJoni builds fictitious worlds using everyday objects. She works mostly with maps, reordering them into new worlds. Before assembling the work Joni devises a set of rules to follow & from then on becomes machine-like in her adherence to them. Decisions are made, but not ones that compromise the rule set.
"The idea becomes a machine that makes the art", Sol LeWitt
Harriet Vyner of Cheerio, interviewed Marianne Faithful about her recent launch of "She Walks in Beauty". Produced with composer Warren Ellis, this draws on her passion for the poetry of Shelley, Keats, Byron, Wordsworth, Tennyson and Thomas Hood and features extra special appearances by Nick Cave, Brian Eno and Vincent Ségal. Not to mention artwork created by Colin Self, a long-time friend. We are selling limited edition prints of these illustrations at our next pop up at Houghton Hall, Rock Paper Scissors - opening 19 May
