FRAGMENTS.. . ./ /. LOVE BIRDS. . //.

Above are photos of the …//. FRAGMENTS.. .\\\.\ Exhibition which opened 14th November 2013./. Before it filled up./
And below are some ‘poor’ photos of the LOVE BIRDS installation which a third of birds put out were returned and reunited on the night../.
A massive thank you to all who attended, helped, and returned birds on the night./. /x


The Love Birds.. ./. Have Been Split.. ./ /.

You’ve found me../. And I’m yours to keep../ …For free  ./ .

I’m sure that most of us when walking the streets pay very little attention to our immediate surroundings and the creatures we share it with. Most of it gets swept past our eyes and shoved off the pavement as we rush to be somewhere we most likely don’t want to be. These birds, in a way are much like you. They are somewhere they don’t want to be and they want to go home to the one they love. So if you’re the lucky one happen across one of these stray birds take them in and they will love you always,.. . /. /././ .

Go one step further, for each bird left on the street there is an equal and opposite waiting. Bring them to the show where their loved one awaits.. ./.

The Last Day Together. .. . . . /./. /. /

Tomorrow i am set to separate the love birds.. . potentially forever. /. It’s there last night together in the warmth./. They are saying their farewells and enjoying what time is left.
There’s every chance this won’t last forever../. there’s every chance they were meant to be together.. /. I hope those who find them feel the same.. /.

Love Birds/. . /. Project. /.

Love Birds Free Art Giveaway. /.

As part of the Solo Exhibition Fragments there will be a free art giveaway in the build-up to the show. This side project is based around the theme of the show that everything experienced remembered and observed is fragmented, everything that is can be said to be broken or fractured in some way or made up of different elements. And it is with that in mind that I have painted pairs of ‘Love Birds’ both of these creatures complement and complete each other  in a way that for most lovers is just a fantasy. But like everything I see that holds real beauty there is a drama and tragedy to that story and so for these birds it’s the same.

I plan to split up each couple and display them separately. One set of the love birds will be displayed in the warmth and safety of the Jewry street gallery and the other halves of the pigeons I will display around the streets of Winchester exposed to the elements and are destined to be given away for free. But there is hope for each couple, the birds left out in the cold of the urban landscape will hold this message../. .

The finder will be invited to bring their pigeon to the show on opening night and reunite it with its partner. The pigeons on display at the gallery will be available for sale if the finder wishes to reunite them for good. Other people will be able to buy the pigeons on display even if they have not found the partner but finders will have priority over any bidders.

It is my hope that all the pigeons will find their way back to the show and all the couples will be reunited, once reunited if bought, the finders will be invited to leave the corresponding pigeons with their partners until the end of the show at which point both will be sent to their new home. Through doing this I hope to highlight that when in this fragmented world two pieces fit together it is the most important thing to keep them together. In this drama of being separated, once reunited the pigeons bond and the owners resolve to keep them together will be solidified.

A hand full more birds set to be separated in Winchester.. /. Lets hope they find their way back together, , . ./ /.

Pigeon Lust. . … . … / . / .

Last week was the opening night of my new solo exhibition ‘Broken People Together’ at Jewry Street Gallery, Winchester. It continues until the 16th of April, so do go and see it.. . .. . On opening night there was a painting that if i had of had 6 of they would have all sold, funnily enough it was the one i was least concerned about showing, it was ‘Trembling On High Wires’.

Such was peoples pigeon lust that the past couple of days i have been spurred to paint more and more pigeons.. .. . Supply and demand, selling out or just giving people what they want. .. . call it what you will as long as i’m still painting everything else seems trivial .. … .. …. . . /. / .

A busy day in the studio. . … . . .. …/. /.

I’ve got a lot on my plate this month preparing for my third solo show at the Jewry St. Gallery, Winchester (starting 16th Feb)  building frames and adding finishing touches to the pieces on show. Not that I’ve fully decided which pieces will be on show… . .

At the same time I’ve got more preparation for the ‘Retracing the Unsinkable’ exhibition this march in Southampton, and for the ‘Celebrating Life’ exhibition in Winchester. As well as that I’ve still got to keep myself occupied painting new pieces for who knows when so i don’t loose my mind. . .. .. . /. all is well in the studio of Belbin..  . .. . . / . / . /.. // .

This Is Clean.. . … / . /
