Brighton 2014 Free Art Exhibition
You may remember, if you are a regular follower, the 100 pigeons exhibited in my last show ‘Pecking At The Sidelines’
Last week i set them free in Brighton, sadly but consciously in their most inhabited environment, The window ledges of empty buildings.. . ./.
They lasted two days. .. ./. I hope they are loved. . /.
Acrylic on reclaimed plywood.
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.
