Down To The Bone. .. . .///. / .

Down To The Bone.. / /.  Last night was meet the artist night at the Onca gallery for DTTB.

DTTB is A collective exhibition of works from varied disciplines in recognition and support of street dogs living overseas. To be hung, open to the public at ONCA Gallery, 14 St George’s Place, Brighton from the 24th until the 30th Sept 2013.
ONCA has a passion for art that integrates with environmental conservation and strives to raise awareness of how environmental change affects every living thing. For whatever reason the dogs we are caring for have found themselves abandoned by owners and on the street. Be it economical, governmental or even military, we have changed their environment and so ONCA Gallery is a most welcome and supportive venue for this collection of work.
There are many street dogs needing support all over the world so why have we chosen to help those in Portugal and Spain? One of the organisers of the exhibition has, for many years, worked in these countries and has seen problems and suffering on a scale that does not happen here in England. There are too many dogs in shelters in the UK awaiting adoption but we have a support network – the animals here, in the main, have basic but good care, water, food a dry bed. Even these most simple needs are not met abroad, the dogs really do have to live on the street or if rounded up they are kept in appalling conditions for a few days before being PTS (put to sleep). These dogs have crossed the organiser’s path, called out for help and had their cries answered. This special lady has seen the problem in her own environment and has taken action. These are the dogs that all funds raised through the exhibition will help.

I was very proud to be invited to take part in this show and to be exhibited along side such well established artists././ .
Here is the piece i contributed to the show./.

Just Beacause Biscuits Break, Doesn’t Mean They Don’t Taste Like Success.. .. /.

What can i really say…/. Apart from thank you to EVERYONE…././. Everyone who came last night, everyone involved in the show and everyone around those involved.././ This show was both mine and Karol Michalecs first show in Brighton and because of you all it was a raging success…. /. The building was full all evening and a buzzing hub of activity …/. Never before has someone elses work complemented mine so well./. Its been incredible to work with such like minded people. This show encompassed all of my favorite elements of fine art… Painting, Graphics, Sculpture, Drawing, Collage, Performance and Free Art.

This show wouldn’t have been possible without Karol Michalec, Hazel Stephenson, Gill at The Painting Pottery Cafe, Alexander Glass, Harry (i dont know your full name light man), Lee Belbin and of course the love of my life Frin.. .  . /.///.

This is the start of a beautiful friendship and you can all expect to see the Belbin and Michalec name joined in the future… . ./.

You can view some of the pictures here…/. but there are more on the way.///.

Geisha.. / ///.

For the run up of ‘Just Because Things Break, Doesn’t Mean They’re Broken’ as well as the free art drops, yesterday Myself, Karol Michalec and my beautiful girlfriend went flyer’ing around Brighton../ with a slightly more dramatic twist en-keeping with the exhibitions theme, we all dressed as post nuclear war geisha. .. //.  This exhibition has literally grown and grown from its first conception encompassing fine art, sculpture, performance and interactive free art drops and is set to be a fantastic show… /. So get excited and come along on the 16th of April to ‘Just Because Things Break, Doesn’t Mean They’re Broken’

Thank you to everyone involved for helping me make this happen.. .. ./. Warmth.. . ./.

Because The World Is Cruel Sometimes.. .. . .//.

So yesterday filming went extremely well…/ .Got all the shots necessary and even had time for a little urban exploring.. / Unfortunately the same cannot be said for the photos of new paintings promised, I’d say that 50% of them are usable so whilst I’m working my way through the pile i am going to be very cruel and post these three paintings which are all revisits to old paintings..//. I never really liked the paintings in the first place so i chopped them up re painted them and put them back together again…… . . . . ./. I have posted pictures of these three pieces over the past month or so but these photos are much better quality../.

But don’t worry your selves i will also do another post this evening of a completely new piece… . One i am very proud of… . /. /.


Pigeon Process.. . . ./. ..//.

Today i have been very busy indeed.. ./. ./ Aside from all the other little projects i have going on all over the place, today i decided to document the process of creating a whole batch of Free Art Birds.. . ./.

Phase one.. . / This beautiful piece of hardboard i lifted from a skip last night.. . /. So first i had to see just how many pigeons i could get out of it.. .. 9 is the answer.

Next Chop them up with one of my favorite tools

a circular disk cutter.. . // mm mmm m

And then give them all a quick coat of black.. . Again my

favorite of all colors, And i know the knee jerk response

to that “But its not a color, its a shade!” that may be

in the natural world but when it comes to paint every

single shade / color needs pigment to give it said color,

in my case the color of that pigment is indeed black,

and as i stroke the black paint side to side i am coloring.. . . . /./. Its a color.. . ./.

Phase four, time to get dirty and finger paint .. .. . /.

Finally after the paint is sufficiently dry add the final touches in the form of eyes,beaks and sign off . . ./.

Tomorrow i will post close ups of each one of these little fellows before they go on their individual journeys.. . .. /. Some are going to Portsmouth tomorrow to find new homes, Some are going.. .well im not sure where yet it all depends on who wins the competition tomorrow on Facebook,.I will be running another give away to all those who share and like the links, names drawn from a hat at the end of the week.. . find out more here
