A Day For Dil

On the 23rd June I will be involved in a day of celebration, of the life and death of Dave Law, more commonly known as DIL23.
Dil23 was a supporter of so many bands and artists alike (including me) and he championed the leftfield arts with so much passion and gusto.

On the 23rd day of June, “A Day for Dil” will commence. It is a multimedia platform, including video, art, music, and word, spread over the internet and culminating in a live show in Glasgow (see flyer below).

I am honoured to be asked to take part in this celebration of his life and have submitted a new art piece especially made for this event.

On the day of the 23rd there will be web links spread all over the net, so it will be like a massive arts trail.
The links will be online for at least 24 hours.
I will post more info next week. with links.

So many contributors, just paying their respects to a lovely, lovely man.

Baby lemonade.

Just finished a new painting, Baby lemonade, 20×20 inches, acrylic on canvas.

This is inspired by my trip to Coney Island, Brooklyn, NYC. I was very lucky as it was a super sunny and had an almost painful (to my eyes) brightness. It took me maybe 20 mins to let my eyes adjust, soo many colours, and shapes that you see on the boardwalk. it is intoxicating.

Silent Pride.

I have been experimenting more with my camera, and I am starting to fall in love with still life subjects. the task is to make an inanimate piece of plastic come to life, and I think I am getting there. For the time being, an old Mothers pride novelty flour shaker has become my muse.

Check back for more images and prices when I release these as limited editions soon.

Why you are here, why not like my Facebook art page!

Thanks

Hollis.

NYC PHOTOGRAPHS

I have added an online photo album of my trip to NYC. It was an unforgettable journey, that will be etched into my memory for a very long time.

We was lucky to be staying with good friend and talented artist James Austin Murray in central Manhattan, West 21st & 7 ave. The location was perfect for galleries, the high line, and Chelsea. The Empire state building was 3 blocks away (i think), we saw it as our beacon to get home.

I had great mornings, with my travel companion Seval, sipping coffee on the stoop, talking to passers by, and generally enjoying the Manhattan vibe.

I spent the whole trip with a smile on my face, and I cannot even start to explain how NYC blew my mind, so I made an online album on Flickr.

I will be updating a fair bit, so please check back from time to time.

pics include these and many more.
