In the studios: Lost in my circle

Ritual, repetition and restriction.

I’m now drawing within the work, an act of ritual framing which centralises and intensifies the figure. However I'm not sold on this direction...

I had high hopes for this 'element' but these shit were out of focus . But experimentation is healthy and I acknowledge wrong turns, who knows if this is somewhere to re-visit at a later date.

For now I've expunged all my film so it off to the stores to locate more Polaroids....afterwards I may move onto series 3 of Waves In Space...or I may re-visit this segment.

In the studios - More of a glimpse of a dream

“Anything you dream is fiction and anything you accomplish is science” (Ray Bradbury)

Another day (night actually) in the studios resolving the 2nd series of 'Just waves in space' - 'Lost in translation'. I've been using up my old - out of date film stock, the results were unpredictable.
Switching to fresh film and everything is crystal clear once more...

Eventually I may enlarge these (especially this fist one) and embellish with geometry and other drawings....

Every shot a self portrait.

Every shot a glimpse of a dream.

Every shot is a blurred moment an abstraction.

Every shot is partly chaos

In the studios - Every Shot is a glimpse of a dream

“Anything you dream is fiction and anything you accomplish is science” (Ray Bradbury)

We return triumphantly to the studios to resolve the 2nd series of 'Just waves in space' - 'Lost in translation'.  Today we are finally becoming… more human.

Every shot is a self portrait.

Every shot a glimpse of a dream.

Every shot is a blurred moment.

The night garden


To protect my vanity and the sensibilities of neighbour’s; new luxury curtains have been installed into our studios, to allow for nocturnal working…

This is something I’ve tried to avoid, but time continues to erode, I suppose every artist must make sacrifices …

Is there bacon…

Love is the devil…

A Francis Bacon sandwich at Tate Liverpool.

This wonderful old fruit is a favourite of mine, not least for his real-life antics (The Colony Room)  but his directness about his work. When asked about his framing Bacon simply stated he ‘used rectangles to cut down scale, to highlight, to focus, to point to the figure’.

“They are intensifiers”

Its for his framing and compositon that I love Bacons work, simular to Schiele the act of focusing on the figure, the line and curve. Its been pointed out my work has some simularities, this is completely accidental, possibly unconscious.

Carpet-burn and frog tounge's

Decided to carpet the studios today...it now feels very groovy in here.



Therapeutic carpeting occupied my time whilst I awaited the delivery of a new frog tongue for my camera, my attempt to reduce the effects of killer-crystals.

The carpeting now gives a feeling of being inside an old pub; very kitsch, it also makes these studios more child friendly; a white exhibition floor being far too slippy for little feet, also its lovely and warm underfoot and there's a warm glow.

This retro make comes from choosing a very industrial floor tile, ironically used primarily in pubs! It was cheap too - about 60% cheaper than on the high street.

I'll be back in here in a few weeks to conclude 'Lost in translation'.
