But until then here is a little sneak at two paintings which have not yet been shown.. .. . you will have to come to the show to see them in full .. . .. . .. . . . . .././. ../. or wait until the show is over./
Everything Changes. . . ../. /.
I have a new solo show opening this weekend at the Lewis Elton Gallery, Guildford.. . . . .. There will be live art, new illustrations, new original paintings, and an original score composed especially for the show by Joe Guilder at Boneyard Audio… /. /./. I do hope to see you there. . . /./.
‘In this space, watch the works evolve and mutate in an explosive way, leaking on to the walls and extending its reach into new grounds as Jakob performs his own brand of live art works to soundscapes and music composed specially for the exhibition by Joe Gilder. Using found canvases of wood, and other abandoned materials, Jakob creates an organic outlook on modern society in this personal and though provoking exhibition.
Watch the gallery space transform into a canvas as Jakob performs live art on its walls throughout the day.’
Canvas?.. . . .I Hate Canvas!!. . . /./.
I am still in limbo.. . … .. Finding a house has been harder than anticipated and so i am still without studio. I did hope that this time away from paint would result in another leap, so i was trying not to paint, even small bits.. . .. …. . saving what ever built up in that time to explode onto another self indulgent epic . .. , but four weeks is more than enough. Its going to be another four weeks until i can get my studio up and running again. So i had to bite the bullet and make do with what ever i could find.. .. . and what did i find? Well annoyingly canvas, canvas that had already been painted on. So i took the hand i was dealt and transformed the already existing paintings into Belbin’s.. .. .. It felt good to paint again but i seriously cannot wait to start on some real work.. . … /././..
