Today i took a walk along Brighton beach with a bag of heads.. ././. . ../. Though i felt a bit bad for leaving them there, i didnt think they’d last long and at the very least they’d be returned to a natural origin.. / ./. So my conscience wasn’t too heavy i left with a couple of buckets of beach rubbish, leaving the beach better than i found it.,. . ..// .
These slate paintings were painted over two years ago, from a series of photographs i took at a small intimate gig at the Bargate Monument in Southampton. The head in question was that of Franz Nicolay.. . /. Good bye Nicolay. /.
