A long time.

Hello Everyone.

Ok.. This is my first blog of the year! But it is a sales driven Blog (yawn) , rather than My usual Posting of new work (yay!).  I have a nice thing coming up. I was asked by YHA organisation to show my Art for a month in their Main building in Bristol (just by the Arnolfini (gallery) and the historic docks.

I will be showing my Montage work for the first time, as a complete show. I do have work in CO-LAB at the moment. But this time I will have ALL of my montage art on show at the YHA, as well as some older paintings. My month starts from  5th April to the 2nd May. I will be posting more dates and promo stuff soon, so do watch this space.

For the first time I will be selling smaller prints.  On offer will be  A3 & A4 Framed Signed prints.. and you can grab yourself a signed colour of splurge on Glorious 250gsm Museum quality paper  from £?? – £95!!

It is a great thing to do, as In the early 90′s the YHA started showing Paintings from local artists.. and I used to go into their Cafe.. to look at such great work.. they have always supported local talent.

In Bristol, in the early 90′s there was nothing like today.. no local artists showing work.. no one dared. But the YHA, Did, and have always done .. and now after so many years since I stepped into their gallery.. I will be now showing work there.. Chuffed is the right phrase I am thinking of.

Ok.. more news soon.. (just busy sourcing frames, mounts.. etc etc).

Cheers then.

A Dream Life Of Hackney Marshes.

, , ,

This must be the month to plug another Album! This is particularly amazing, and sits well with me whilst, making my landscapes. Gareth E Rees, also known as Hackney Marshman has teamed up with the  ensemble Jetsam. And released this great album A Dream Life Of Hackney Marshes

a-dream-life

The sound they make is quite massive, but yet very very personal, this is because Gareth, reads out passages from his new Book “Marshland: Dreams and Nightmares on the Edge of London” whilst Jetsam, play esoteric “chamber Music” for the pre Digital generation  The sense of space.. and ethereal sound , match well with Gareth’s Odd tales, of “Water Works, Pigeons, (and my fave so far) Pylons”

The album is like having your “Walkman” on, whilst rambling through Hackney Marshes, On a beautiful Autumn morning.. crisp air, and your hands thrust deep, in your coat pockets. Whilst Gareth is whispering in your ear about local legends, Pylon sex, and Modern Love.. which as I said earlier.. makes the whole sound very immersive. I think the CD has sold out.. But you can listen then buy the album here.

GOBUZLI – Abstract Origami Black Belt

gobuzli1Off topic From my usual  posts, but, some plugging for a great album! I have been following this band for a number of years.. there is something about them.. that makes me really smile.

If Nancy Sinatra (Smoking 6 cigars a day) , had a lost weekend in Berlin with Errol Flynn, Rodgers and Hammerstien , Al Pacino, (wearing a dress) and Howling Wolf.. they most probably have made this.. And got the recognition they deserved.

I am also noted on the sleeve notes! (so thanks for that you CRAZY Beatniks!). It is an amazing album.. nice with my cup of tea this morning  More info on them including Videos sounds etc, click here
