HERE WE GO AGAIN

With due regard to all those who suffer for their art I’m finding this painting malarky a piece of piss.   I haven’t done any ‘real’ paintings for over 50 years but having discovered acrylic paints and a source of free MDF (medium density fibreboard) I’m on a roll. ‘Pansy’s Swan Song’ acrylic … nooooo … […]

INTERVIEW WITH CHANNEL 5 ART’S CORRESPONDENT 

  “What inspires you Daddy Papersurfer?” “Anything.” “Anything?” “Yes. Anything in real life, printed, on social media, anything that you can smell or touch or listen to – anything.” “Anything you can smell!!!?!” “Indeed although I’d rather keep those sources to myself.” “Thank you for that. Anyway, tell me about this painting.” “Well, it all […]

THE CASE FOR THE DEFENCE.

    “Well Mr Daddy Papersurfer, what have you got to say in your defence?” I rose unsteadily to my feet. “Your honour, members of the jury, my loyal fans in the gallery, I realise that the photographic evidence found on my iPhone by the police appears to be damning. Let me explain. A mosquito […]

ANOTHER …

… of my own things.     ‘April’ – the month when nature winds itself up. Acrylic on MDF.

I’M THINKING …

… just do my own thing.     ‘As Stately as a Gastropod’ acrylic on MDF in bespoke frame.

PROGRESSION

Not everything you see  …..       … is what you might think it is ….     From my point of view, nothing is as simple as it appears … apart from the complicated of course.

SOFA SO GOOD

This is where the magic happens … (and in the shed of course).   2018 has taken a surprising turn. I haven’t done a shed load of paintings for a very long time and I have never done ‘proper’ paintings using acrylic paint before. Some of these will be available to see (and purchase) at […]

PAINTING. Really!!!?!

I needed an old-school type painting as part of my next exhibition of exciting and innovative sculptures so decided I’d better do it myself.     He turned out ok. I found another off-cut I could use so then did a painting I’ve been thinking about for ages. It was grown from a cutting and lives […]

THE CURATOR’S EGG

  The new exhibition at A Galeria Secreta is, in the main, excellent.   If people knew where it was, they would flock. As it is, views are very private. If you want a private view bring your own wine and glasses … oh and some cheese, I like cheese. Contact me for details.

THINKING AHEAD … again

  I was talking to the voices in my head and one of them came up with a brilliant idea … merchandising for my next exhibition to help with costs! Consequently I’ve gone into intense production.     There will be two products for sale, both in limited edition runs and all individually monogrammed. Minimum […]
