I have this wee piece (although it won´t be like this as it will be printed in 2 tones black and gold, i think) in the show below! Of course the first thing that came into my mind about the theme “Collectionistas”, was idea why..haha!


Risograph print exhibition.
25 posters by collectors, artists, photographers and designers.

… Records played by connoisseur record collectors and refreshments will be available.

I love the obsession inherent in collecting. The completist, whether finding that all-important last football sticker to finish their sticker book or one of those committed men (more often than not) standing on a rainy platform furtively scribbling down train
numbers. The amateur hobbyist, complete with vast selection of frogs/bottle tops/records/paper fruit wrappers/tram tickets/ whatever; I always admired those kids at school who had a million different shaped and coloured erasers (they were called
rubbers then, before Aids)… I loved their dedication and their neatness and I got dizzy just trying to imagine how much pocket money they got… It´s all valid!

There something religious about this devotion. It´s repetitive, inspiring and, well, ultimately pointless. Long live the anoraks!

Lisa Gingles is an artist born in Northern Ireland and based in Valencia since 1998. She graduated in fine arts from the University of Ulster in Belfast, where she began to develop her narrative style. She has exhibited nationally and internationally over the past years. Gingles´ artistic repertoire primarily consists of small drawings that are crafted using pages from old books or their covers as a foundation. Additionally, she has begun incorporating larger charcoal drawings and sculptures into her body of work. " The artist´s works conjure a bewitching world of eerie fairly tales and ancient folklore, a world where both menacing and benign forces of nature are at play" Sunday Business Post, Susan Morrel.
