New Solo Exhibit: You Sentimental Idiot at Paul Smith Globe

We were more than excited to hear that one of our market artist''s, Rikkianne Van Kirk (You Sentimental Idiot) will be having a solo exhibition at Paul Smith Globe at Terminal 5, Heathrow (England) this summer.

As written up on the Paul Smith Globe site, "The forthcoming exhibition features Van Kirk's 'You Sentimental Idiot' project, an endeavour inspired by found materials that have a past. Old diaries are the main medium; the first was a diary Rikkianne inherited from her great aunt, the rest were found in antique shops. Rikkianne’s intention is to bring the diary’s aged pages and forgotten words up to date with her illustrations. Some drawings are inspired by direct quotes while others are what the artist imagines the writer would have seen. The end result breathes life into something old, something forgotten, something sentimental."

The show will run 26th July – 23rd August 2011 at Paul Smith Globe, Departure Lounge, Terminal 5, Heathrow Airport.

Rikkianne has made some limited edition postcards exclusively for our On the Road market that just launched today featuring her "You Sentimental Idiot" drawings. My Travels is a limited edition postcard set featuring 4 prints.  Visit You Sentimental Idiot online:
