GOING OLD SCHOOL

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 […]

THE ANGLE OF THE SOUTH

If you happen to be wandering down a public footpath that leads nowhere and that teeters on the edge of a cliff somewhere within sight of France and Dungeness Power Station and just out of sight of an official nudist beach, you might spy this … There’s even an incisive and concise explanation … This […]

A GRAND DAY OUT

Yesterday went very well. The sun was out, only one seagull criticised my work and there were plenty of gingernuts to share around. My favourite comment was “Anything can be wonderful when perceived [conceived?] by the right mind.” However I won’t mention the little girl that wandered around and then announced she was bored and […]

EIGHT FOOT SQUARE

Hang on … that’s 12 square feet! AN ODE What would you do in an eight foot square? Wear top hat and tails? – trés debonair Or wobble about and get bad mal de mer? Or perhaps cut your hair in a large barber’s chair? There might be the sight of a huge grizzly bear […]

IT’S IN THE BAG

I’m organised. Everything is ready. Roll on Saturday! [that reminds me – buy some deodorant] Healing Magic Hands made a comment the other day that has made me go bananas and buy the bestest gingernuts in the world … [actually they were on offer… somebody’s God is smiling down on me]. As I’ve often heard […]

SECRET REVEALED!

This coming Saturday is the day that the contents of my brain will be displayed in an area Eight Foot Square. For one afternoon only I will be stripped naked for all to see on the Stade in Hastings. I hope it isn’t going to be chilly. As an added incentive I will be revealing […]

TRIAL RUN

I’ve been having a trial run for my ‘Shed Load of Stuff’ that will be showing on the Stade at Hastings, England on the 18th of August. This has taken place in bedroom five at the Cliff Top Residence. Lo, she is a terrible Goddess isn’t that chuffed … apparently I’ve restricted access to her […]

THE QUIET CORNER

In normal circumstances it is I that is told to sit in the quiet corner and think about what I’ve done. This is Lo, she is a terrible Goddess on the day the 14,341 pirates invaded Hastings. Apparently my behaviour was so bad that she needed to sit in the quiet corner and think about […]

DADDY PAPERSURFER, THE BANNERET

I’m marshalling my troops and preparing them for their appearance on the Stade outside the Jerwood Gallery in Hastings on the afternoon of the 18th August. I’m thinking inside the box and will be trying to teach you how to do the same – it’s quite easy really. Nourish yourselves with gingernuts and forget everything […]

EXHIBIT SIX

WELLINGTONIUS MUCHMUNCHA The Wellingtonius Muchmuncha, commonly known as the Ankle Biter, feeds exclusively on wellington boots. This charming and cuddly creature makes an ideal pet if looked after properly. However, as we all know, it must only be fed one wellington boot a day. If overfed he/she grows enormous teeth which can cut through wire […]
