It has been a seriously long time since i’ve had the resources to post./. what with moving house, being between internet and smashing my camera, all cheap excuses but all variables in why i haven’t posted, But now finally back, with a lot of stuff to show you.. /. I have been working on a secret series (which pieces will be revealed in time) i have been in two group shows, i have been live painting and i have been dropping free art in Brighton. . /. Where to start?
Lets start small, simple and beautiful../. As part of The ‘Terra Nova’ show organized by the lovely girls at Saints Lot, i painted three geisha girls on reclaimed electricity fuse box doors. The whole show was based around the idea of reusing and recycling which suits me fine. The Show was held at Yum Yum Ninja, Brighton hence the theme of my pieces. There are plenty of photos to come from the live painting i also did at the show ../. but that can wait for another post..
It feels good to be back and i hope that with this post i can wet your appetites and claw back the consistency and following i once had./../ No more dead air space.. . //.//.

All 40 x 30 cm Japanese Receipts and Acrylic on Hardboard, The Frames are made from old canvas’s and perspex using bolts from an old bed to create a window.. . . /.
While clearing out my studio i found some old canvases.. . . .really old canvases! I haven’t painted on canvas for a few years now but was at a lost as to what to do with them, i certainly didn’t want to keep the atrocities that had gone before but i also didn’t want to waste such good resources. i left it for a couple of days then it hit me, chop off all the canvas and use the wooden frames to create boxed frames…. . . here it is so far. . . . The old paintings are now gone forever. . … . ./. . unseen.. ./// ./
