Couple of Paintings in Progress


Just a few acrylics I started during the week.

One based on my digital homage to The Handmaidens.

The other homages myself ;) As well as Ball, Balthus and Bellmer - not to mention Rego.



*The Burnt out car is a painting by my studio partner.

Happy Easter 2018!

Happy Easter to all and Sundry :) I hope everyone is well and making wonderful art!


Here's a few details of my homage to Fra Angelico's (d.1455) work 'The Crucifixion' (1420), to help celebrate Easter.
Fra Angelico was one of the first artists to use linear perspective, but while I was studying his work I found his spatial constructions fairly compressed - so when I made this work I worked with a series of images constructed like collages to try and achieve that same compression.
This work is one of the works presently on the wall at the Hugo Ball show - at Maitland Regional Art Gallery, NSW Australia.
There's more about the show here at  https://www.mrhugoball.com/ 
Thank you for looking.

Talk myself up time :)


Hey, is this thing on? 

If you happen to be in Oz at the moment I'd like to invite you to my show at Maitland Regional Art Gallery. It's a show featuring the annunciator of the Dada movement - Hugo Ball. 

I hope everyone is well and all your parts of the planet are singing.

I include some media stuff to talk myself up :)

The Helmet Bird from The Garden of Earthly Delights - after Hieronymus Bosch



I'm having a show at Maitland Regional Art Gallery (NSW, Australia)  soon. Opens Feb 3rd 2018 and goes to April 29th. It's a show of digital homages to famous and less famous painters. This is the Helmeted Bird out of one of Bosch's works - The Garden of Earthly Delights. He appears in my homage to another work by Bosch - Removing the Stone of Madness. 

Of course I'd love it if you came to the show :)

MRAG website is here.

cheers from Oz!
