The more i practice for the art of Tattoo the more my half finished ideas of art and expression slip away, today i sought to rekindle one such project, changing the pen for the brush to take on an old adversary
In 2012 i started a series entitled ‘Life In Little Pieces’.
The idea was to create a wall of 12 ‘saints’ all of which have had their place in my life past and future. essentially they are all self portraits /. They would be exhibited in a row, like the imposing art in a christian church, but take on a more gothic and self reflecting tone. Rather than these idols that celebrate the idea of virtue and sacrifice i wanted to focus on the parts of humanity which we might not want to fully admit, misdeed, alienation, heartbreak and ultimately, mortality.
Due to a few technical difficulties and ridiculous drying times ‘Knocked Up’ will most likely give birth tomorrow.. . .. for the mean time here is ‘Figure I’ completed. …. / . It will be making its début at Pop Atelia Studio Winchester … ..

For this piece i have steered away from any particular theme or point by choosing a dull but inevitable part of everyone’s lives and focused completely on the aesthetic qualities.. . . .. here is Fig.I through the motions .. .. .. .. . so far.. /.
