Revelations

'Revelations' was a multi-faceted project that took place Sep-Dec 2016. It included two major solo shows, one being an Artangel commission, a solo presentation at Start Art Fair, a public work in collaboration with the I-70 Sign Show in Missouri, a public work as part of the BAS8 Associate Programme in Southampton, a collaboration with Jon Gower in the pages of CCQ Magazine, the production of a plectrum used by Joey Z from Life of Agony on their US/European tour and the publishing of a book that surveyed over 20 years of practice.

Plectrum for Joey Z, Life of Agony

300 of this plectrum were produced and used by Joey Z through the latter part of 2016, passing through his hand to fans all over the world. The skull is Joey Z's usual artwork, so the intervention came in the message written in Anglo-Saxon runes on the other side.  

Revelations - Publication

A 200 page publication, produced working with Landfill Editions and Blue Firth, published by Syson Gallery. The book is the most comprehensive survey of the work of S Mark Gubb to date and includes essays by Jonathan Griffin, Ellen Mara De Wachter and an interview with Ross Sinclair.
