GOOD LUCK!

  I’m very lucky. I have the time and inclination to change this …   … via this … … and adding it to this …   … to make this.     Now all I’ve got to do is work out how to display it in a freestanding position in the middle of the […]

THE BOTTOM OF MY GARDEN

So today, I was sitting in the garden enjoying a G&T when I heard a voice emanating from the public footpath the other side of the hedge – “Is that art?” I began to feel a tad depressed. And then I remembered that yesterday, when I was actually on the public footpath looking for feathers, […]

DEATH ANNOUNCEMENT

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the death of the Fairlight Eye. This iconic landmark, which has played such a significant role in making Fairlight, E.Sussex into the must-visit tourist destination status that it enjoys today, was destroyed by heavy winds last night. In my role as ninja sculpture doctor (untrained […]

THE DADDY PAPERSURFER MEMORIAL GALLERY

This property is for rent in the Old Town Hastings. The cost? £28000 per annum plus rates and ‘stuff’. I propose that some rich git gifts it to me so I can open a permanent space to show my genius. I guarantee that my work will increase in value as soon as I’ve died. It […]

THERE AREN’T …

…. enough words in the world. I’ve never particularly liked the word ‘artist’. It’s too vague. Anything I come up with sounds silly. ‘Artyfactualist’ ‘Romantic Clutterist’ ‘Imaginaryist’ This isn’t a problem at the moment but as soon as a patron steps forward to offer me a permanent space to exhibit my sculptures I will need […]

THE DIE IS CAST

My work is done. Everything is in place for my Open Studio exhibition ‘Thru the Keyhole’ and I’m ready to throw open the side gate. The responsibility is now firmly in the eyes and minds of any visitors. I shall, of course, be there to make cups of tea and coffee and hand round the […]

IT WON’T BE LONG NOW

The Coastal Currents Arts Festival 2015 will be kicking off shortly. The brochure is very shiny and very exciting. Hastings and it’s environs will be awash with all things arty. Click HERE to download the brochure. In the meantime the key to my personal success will rely heavily on trying to expand my taste away […]

OPEN STUDIOS 2015

Later this year, September I believe, I’ll be throwing open my side passage so that peeps can gawp at my doings and wonder. A typical conversation from the last time I participated in this annual vibrant Coastal Currents cultural event ran along these lines. “Why do you bother?” “Everest.” “The double glazing company?” “No, the […]

STOP GOING ROUND IN CIRCLES!

There is a roundabout on Hastings sea front that is causing quite a kerfuffle. Please read about it here. We now have the stick-in-the-muds who just want the rather sad looking fountain renovated and that can only be used when it isn’t windy because in those conditions cars using the roundabout think they’re in a […]

THE BARE CHEEK OF IT!

Is this the sort of thing we want to see in Hastings? Or even masses of naked flesh draped all over the sea front!!!!!?! Of course it is. There are plans for a flashing flash mob this coming Friday down at the Stade Open Space. Full details on the Jerwood website – click HERE for […]
