This is slightly off topic but Bjork has played a huge part in the making of my work and is without doubt one of the most important artists of our lifetime… . .. ..

Created by manipulating and painting the doll, in front of a hand painted background. And then setting a fire underneath the lens to create the smoke.. . . /. /.
Recent posts might suggest that im running out of ideas… ../. / I have been attacking old paintings and improving them, now normally i would stand by the premise of ‘once a piece of art is finished it should never be revisited’ but there has been quite few paintings now that have been keeping me up at night. I knew when i ‘finished’ them i was not happy with them the truth is i was either bored of looking at them or utterly clueless as to what to do with them. This week that has changed, I have had breakthrough’s on paintings i never wanted to see the light of day and i put it down to my work schedule. I normally have a million different ideas, series’, paintings, drawings and plans all going on at the same time and normally i end up evolving before i’ve really finished exploring these ideas. This week i wrote a list of all the things i have going on and unfinished and am not allowed to start anything new until this list is complete. So even though the ideas are piling up still, Its better than half finished projects piling up! Thats not to say that this blog will be short of new things to show you.. . …. . …/./. Here is the latest re hash of an old painting i did… …. . .its now good enough to be used as origanlly intended, Art work for the band Caolin Clay.. . ….. .. ./. ////. .
