BACK TO MY ROOTS

Not long to go now. Here is a piccy of my very latest piece. If you want to see what it’s all about you’ll have to pop into the Cliff Top Residence during the next two weekends.* The population in and around Hastings is a diverse one. Arty fartists, culture vultures, the bucket-and-spade brigade, occupants […]

FOR THOSE WHO MISSED MY VERY PRIVATE VIEW

Oh goody, the first review is in and it’s extremely positive. (As I can’t find my gingernuts this morning it appears that Fred is the one who took the biscuits) Full details of Coastal Currents 2013  HERE

GAINING MY FACULTIES

I have been seeing the way my presentation for the Coastal Currents Open Studio event has developed as a sort of museum but I’ve now realised that it’s grown into the basis for forming a university. ‘The Daddy Papersurfer University’ really does have a ring to it with the gravitas it is so desperately in […]

OPEN STUDIOS 2013 – MISSION STATEMENT

The Open … … experience I’m trying to create requires people to get their … … and I’m also trying to help … … see the true path of adaptability. I’m even supplying some footprints to follow. Full details of Coastal Currents to be found here. Page 65 is particularly interesting. What’s for tea?

SEAGULLS ARE STUPID

Photo by Ken Hall. Painted gull is wooed by real gull. They’re not that bright. The front garden is getting a tad crowded.

THE TROUBLE IS …

… once you go ‘old school’ it starts taking over the shed and nicks your seat. That is one BIG crow. I’m putting him in charge of keeping an eye on my Open Studio efforts at the end of September.

Sometimes after having spent several years creating cutting edge art using mobile phones, wire netting, old copper cylinders, rubber ducks and Action Men you just have to reassure yourself you can still do the ‘proper’ stuff like drawing and painting. Yep, still got it. That’s OK then. Now …. where’s that calcified tap and my […]

EXHIBIT 11

I Told You Not To Rattle My Cage There is a long story behind most things. The story behind this creation involves two opportunists, a banana, a lawn mower and a fireman … and that just scratches the surface. The full story will never be told. I apologize now to all future followers, art historians, […]

EXHIBIT 10

THE GAS DUCKTECTOR I am fully expecting that my latest invention is going to make me very rich. I have been very concerned for a number of years about the canaries that are used in mines to detect lethal gas. It was not a good sign if the canary keeled over and died, particularly for […]

EXHIBIT EIGHT

Getting off to a cracking start in 2013 with this new creation in the ‘Thinking Inside the Box’ series. The Gastrapoda Phoenix lays it’s single egg inside a cage just before it bursts into flames at which point the chick emerges almost immediately. After several weeks the chick’s legs are long enough for it to […]
