I Scream Factory is a collective of creatives inspired by the idea that ice cream is a metaphor for life. Support their Kickstarter to bring their work to Hoxton Gallery.

I Scream Factory has been given the opportunity to host an exhibition from 27th August to 3rd September at our friends of Hoxton Gallery in London.

The photo exhibition will be called ‘Scream for Ice Cream’ – a title that takes us back to a seminal scene in Jim Jarmusch’s 1986 film Down by Law. I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Support I Scream Factory’s Kickstarter and get some great rewards, like a signed fine art print on our Fuji Crystal Archive paper of your favourite work!

London based artist - Emma McNally took her degree in English and Philosophy and as an artist is self-taught, developing a subtle drawing style which fuels the complex mark-making of her large works in graphite on paper. She also works on a small scale, layering tissue paper and pouncing holes in the surface.

‘I like graphite’s materiality: its mess and dirt as well as its capacity to leave the cleanest, sharpest percussive marks and lines. I feel like I’m forging land formations when I use it, or scattering particles, or spiralling vortices of smoke and water,’ she writes.

Anna Gillespie’s Resourceful Sculptures of the Human Figure

British sculptor Anna Gillespie uses the body as a template, creating human figures that appear to be subsumed in the material from which they are made. Ranging from small-scale to life-size, Gillespie’s sculptures emerge from conventional materials like bronze and plaster and, sometimes, more resourceful items such as acorns and beech nuts. Her figures appear prone to the elements. Some appear to be blown away by the wind or covered creeping plant life as if they have become part of nature, returning to their origin. Take a look at some of her work below, images courtesy of Anna Gillespie.

Fantastical portraits by Miss Bugs

London Street Art duo Miss Bugs are design culture mixologist who take the practice of appropriation to a more finished end than the stencil kings of recent years heralding from their hometown of Bristol.  While brashly mashing the visual stories of your recent past, they’re telling new stories about hybrids and technology and the practice of untethering of pop and modern art imagery from it’s original docking. With disinterested and postmodern ladies acting as curvaceous archetypes of sensuality and as foil, Miss Bugs incorporates signature elements of other artists’ works into their distorted forms, weaving them into the hair, tattooing them across the skin, and then place them in the public sphere. ~Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo
