Following on from yesterdays post. . /. /
The “Terra Nova” exhibition held at Yum Yum Ninja was based around the idea of reusing and recycling. All the pieces i exhibited in the show were all made from reused materials (electric fuse box doors and record sleeves). In the run up to the show i was asked to perform some live art, as always i had a very loose concept and was going to leave it up to accident and chaos on the night. My plan was to build a ‘canvas’ on site and paint it there and then. But on the way to the show i found a set of old blinds thrown out on the street, and it was all too perfect an accident to pass up, it fitted perfectly with the recycle and reuse concept and because it looked like a scroll unrolled it tied in with the theme of the Japanese restaurant. I picked it up and decided to paint that at the show instead../. the perfect blend of planning and chaos.. /. .//. I ended up calling the piece “Love You TO Death” .. /. And i have no idea what happened to it after the show.. /. ??
“Love You To Death” Acrylic on Reclaimed Blind
I have been so busy recently concentrating on work that i actually might be able to sell that it has been quite a considerable amount of time since i last took on another ridiculous self indulgent project. Well today i set about rectifying that by starting what is (since the last time) set to be my most ambitious painting to date. I don’t want to give too much away at this point, So have a look at the photos and see if you can speculate as to what it might be.. . ….. /. /. over two metres long and over a metre tall… .. .. there’s not a smooth surface to be seen anywhere.. . …. / / . ….//. .
