Reverence

 

 

Although in two parts, they are meant to be placed side by side an inch apart.


The left part is an almost mythical, heraldic youthful phoenix of sorts representing earth. And the left part, the holy mother representing heaven/spirit.
Both bow in sincere reverence to each other.


Constructed in two separate parts. The heaven and earth expanse becomes instantly bridged by their sincere reverence.


It’s a pity we can't more draw together in reverence of our positive, greatest achievements. And build on them together to bridge our differences.

To arms

 

Not meant to be anything more than just a personal dear diary moment. Hence its size for such a loaded piece. It wasn’t a good day. You try to help someone out and drop yourself right in it. 


I have though since about re-working the piece much bigger but I feel it would be like re-writing my diary entry. I don’t think I could stage its sincerity.

A Couple

 

 

I’m not about to taint the purity of this simple little piece by droning on

other than it was my first memorable kiss aged 13.  

I’d love this to be cast in bronze.

Final voyage

 

 

As Michael Jackson put it This is it!


This piece is deeply about my own final voyage.
From the figure on the small boat adrift (waiting) on still waters. To
the coffin figure touching upon mortality.


The box like steps represent my artwork in storage. Also waiting.

Totem 2015

 

 

A symbol of great harvest. Full beaks. Full bellies. Good fortune.

Health. And stability.

CUT!

 

 

Whose Utopia!

 

 

As a youth living in a 60s Brutalist block of flats were no utopia. Hard gray concrete. The stench of urine stained stairways and lifts.  Filth. Hardship. Dim lighting if any. Rubbish. Rowdy youths at night stating their claim to their floor. Smashed in doors. Decay. Balconies covered in gray smelly pigeon crap.  Packed like battery hens.   Scraping from day to day.  
Whose utopia?

From above

 

 

From above is a mergence of cathedral in crucifix form and tomb.
Medieval in presence and modern in form.

Damned if you do...

 


This piece was sparked by the headlines relating to Tony Blair’s interview with CNN 2015.

 

The left feature is Tony Blair.
And the right side is Saddam Hussein.
Its apposing profiles are meant to be nothing but that. Apposing profiles.


Hindsight is a wonderful thing!
Hence the title: Damned if you do...

EUtopia

 

2015

 

 

Please don’t be fooled into believing (2015) is a slur on Mr Farage, his politics or supporters. It is meant to highlight the fruits of failing politics to seriously address widespread concerns, here at grass roots in the uk. Grass roots, not ivory towers. 

 

We deny this again at our peril. 

 

The sniper character isn’t meant to stereotype one individual, but presents many divided simmering tensions. 

 

And on the fence, social media peddling it’s irresponsible ranting in the guise of free  speech. And so on.

The birth of a museum exhibit.

 

This piece marks the birth of the artist.
Their seminal work/s.
And the birth of a museum exhibit after their passing in a death mask format.

 

Morbid, maybe but the draft for such a piece came from fragments of

Tracey Emin’s own youtube reflections of such issues.


This piece was unbelievably instant throughout its conception regarding its presence, meaning, construction and presentation. Very specific.
