Jasper Goodall is going to be hosting two evenings of Q&A at the Electric Blue Gallery in London to coincide with his current exhibition. The dates are Thursday 19th February from 7pm to 8pm, and also the following Thursday 26th from 7pm to 8pm. If you’re interested in coming along to join the conversation please RSVP the gallery to book your place. See you there.
Jasper Goodall has a forthcoming show at The Electric Blue Gallery in London. The exhibition features new erotic artwork exploring Jaspers preoccupation with the themes of sexual fetish and the erotic art world. “Sexual proclivities and artwork seem to follow certain themes, these themes are repeated so often they become clichés, I find this fascinating…. I am intrigued by notions in sex and fetish that result in cliched roleplay; the naughty nurse, the naughty nun, the kinky policewoman, the pink frilly shepherdess. All share a similar themes: either innocence corrupted, mothering turned sexual, or authority and power bent or discarded in sexual passion’.
This month’s excellent Varoom magazine features Jasper Goodall in conversation with John Vernon Lord, Paul Burgess and Jim Stoten. All four image makers share a common interest in having taught illustration at the University of Brighton. They chat about their views on contemporary illustration, art education and professional life in a wide ranging discussion that also asks why illustrators have a fondness for beards – well these four at any rate! Jasper also created the provocative cover image for the issue. ‘Tigress’ is a work in progress and part of a series of images exploring fantasy – the intention being that the final image is output on transparent film and photographed whilst held up in front of a model. ‘Evil Mickey’ is another image from the series and accompanies the feature.
