  4th - 12th December 2021 Modern life is too complex for me! As an experiment in simplification I intend to rid myself of all my possessions and document the process for later artworks. I want to start again with an empty box and choose carefully what I put in it. Is this even possible?! As part of the AOH (Artist Open Houses) festival this winter I will be selling off my entire private art, antique and artifact collection from my home and online. Included among over 150 items on same will be many things that have influenced my work alongside many of my own original artworks. Nearer the time I will be posting a link here to the online auction and the AOH online sales page so you may participate even if you are unable to visit. I will be opening my doors for the weekends of 4/5 and 11/12 December. Private visits outside of these dates are possible by appointment any time from 1 November to 31 December.   PRIVATE VISITS - If you would like to visit the house outside of the AOH weekends please email and make a really good case for a private view! info@jamiemccartney.com   PRESS ENQUIRIES: Visit the contact page for

    1st - 13th June 2022 I will be visiting Japan for the first time in summer 2022. My itinerary will take in Tokyo and several cities in search of appropriate galleries and museums to exhibit my work. As a huge Japanophile it is amazing to me I have never visited the country. As well as admiring the food and contemporary art cultures I have been an enthusiastic collector of shunga for many years. An exhibition of The Great Wall of Vagina planned for Tokyo in 2013 was cancelled due to its branding as an obscenity by the Tokyo police (see article). Since then the country's censorship of the arts and its uneasy relationship with erotica has fascinated me. I have corresponded with Japanese artists and read much about their history of erotic art, which for many years was considered taboo. My work has also featured frequently in the Japan Daily Press and Weekly Gendai publications. At last I have a chance to experience the culture first hand and forward my cause to exhibit my vulva artworks in Japan.   MEET THE ARTIST - If you would like to meet Jamie to discuss a business opportunity or to model for his new work whilst he's

    Artists Supporting Artists - I'm spending 10% of my income to help other artists survive I personally pledge to spend 10% of the value of all new commissions or sales on other artists' work, until this crisis is over. Many other artists have joined the pledge. If we all support each other that money just keeps circulating. It's a win win.  #artistssupportingartists  The artist's life is a precarious one. Most are living hand to mouth. One sale can keep a career going. That is more true now than you can imagine. Many of us do not have large reserves. The longer this goes on the more studios will close, the more artists will give up. We will need the arts and culture to drive the reconstruction of a better world. Let not our world be culturally impoverished by the loss of artistic talents to uncreative jobs. Please support the artists you know or collect, your local artists and the arts in general. If you can afford it, please make purchases, commissions or donations. If you buy from me know that I'll be immediately buying from other artists to help them get through too
