GENTLE DIGS

I love to have a gentle dig at the expense of the art establishment. This piece starts off a new series I’ll be making under the banner ‘Art on a Shoestring’. It’s titled ‘The Physical Possibility of Affording Some Art’. I went to Goldsmiths’ College quite a few years before Damien Hirst and co and […]

FAIRLIGHT’S COLUMN!

Please find clear and simple directions below on how to find Fairlight’s Column! Fairlight nestles to the East of Hastings right on the coast. It can be found. There is just one road into Fairlight which also has to be used to escape. Basically it’s one large cul-de-sac which goes part way to explaining why […]

PLANNING FOR THE FUTURE

When the call comes I know what I would do here …. When the call comes I know what I would do here … When the call comes I know what I would do here …. I am ready.

LAST THROW OF THE DICE

This weekend is the last weekend of Coastal Currents Open Studios and, so far, it’s been grand. I’ll be adding some of these … … to the Mad Hatter’s tea table as a friendly nod to Tracey M&M’s notorious ‘My Bed’. I hope none spill out though … … as I don’t particularly want any […]

REPORT ON LAST SATURDAY’S PREVIEW

It all went jolly well and I’m looking forward to throwing open my side gate again next weekend and the weekend after as part of Coastal Currents Arts Festival 2015. Full details available here. Overheard last weekend – “Distressing.” “Why?” “Apart from all that, the biscuits were delicious .” “Oh that reminds me, we need […]

… something new … perhaps. My afternoon nap often throws up an idea or two. This afternoon I awoke with the thought of ‘words in cages’. We are becoming more and more restricted in what we are allowed to say although no malice or prejudice is meant or intended. This is worrying. What is more […]

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 […]

BUSY BUSY BUSY

I’m turning little soldiers into sailors …. … well, swimmers really, and I’m redesigning my Hastings Eye into something a tad more recognisable. The local residents are crying out for more stuff and nonsense and I will NOT disappoint them!

WHEEL OF FORTUNE

This might look like an old bicycle wheel to you but to me it looks like the basis of a major work of art. Thanks to my nephew Anthony for providing the wheel although he has no idea that I purloined it yesterday. Luckily he was distracted bouncing his son up and down on his […]

PLAQUE ATTACK

I was down on the cliff top this morning admiring the Angle of the South when I noticed that my back gate had been vandalised! However … on closer inspection I discovered recognition at last! . …….. or it could be wishful thinking I suppose.
