IMMORTALITY

I suspect that many artists hope for immortality. They produce their stuff and guard and cherish and record in photographic form and use materials that will outlive them in the vain hope that what they have made will be appreciated, loved and admired forever. Most will be disappointed but they won’t know it because they’re […]

MOVING WITH THE TIMES

Work continues apace at A Galeria Secreta in Portugal. .   It was felt that the classic ‘4 Weddings and a Funeral’ needed updating to reference progression in recognisable official relationships. Here you can quite clearly see that I’m getting very near to the edge – the cutting edge – of social and artistic excellence. […]

THE SHORT TEMPERED MAN OF FAIRLIGHT

  Although Grumpy has been created in Portugal he will have a significant role to play later in the year at the Cliff Top Residence during Coastal Currents Open Studios 2017. . He appears to be on his soap-box once again, well, perched at the base of a yucca plant actually. I couldn’t quite work out […]

THE JUICES CONTINUE FLOWING.

  Although A Galeria Secreta in Portugal is getting quite crowded yet another sculpture has emerged. This is Hilda sitting atop the Boar’s Jaw throne surveying her boardom. Well it’s either that or Hilda is worried her HRT treatment has gone terribly wrong. .

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 […]

ONTO …

… 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 […]
