Franz’s Many Heads Left Scattered On The Beach.. . . ./// ./

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. /.

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. . /.

Life. . /In Little Pieces. . . . ././.

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.

Today’s two new additions means that there is only one more step to complete this long forgotten project././ The hardest step ‘Passing The Seed’./.
