The character of the heads of the so called kings and queens… #arthistory #chartres

May 4, 2017


‘… These heads seem to me to show a new stage in the ascent of western man[kind]. Indeed I believe that this refinement, this look of selfless detachment, and spirituality is something entirely new in art. Beside them the Gods and Heroes of Ancient Greece look arrogant, soulless, even slightly brutal.


‘I fancy that the faces that look out at us from the past are, perhaps, the surest indication we have of the meaning of an epoch.’


And the faces on the westside of Chartres Cathedral are amongst the most sincere and the most aristocratic that western Europe has ever produced.’

thanks to Baron Clark and Civilisation




Art and Life, still and moving, words and images…

February 3, 2017


In the studio at night i draw

and paint with pens,

small works on paper.

Work must be done.

Fairy lights and naked bulbs

charm in the dark.

It calms one.

The book is closed.

Lights out, doors locked and on to the cold street.

The wind whips by, past the Lion, across the busy road,

under the railway arch, along the bike path

and through the graveyard

and peace

The bus stop. 253

6 minutes.

Pity the passengers.

It claims one

portrait of the artist

Yes since you ask I think the word Awesome is definelty the most grossly misused, overused, abused.

Anyways here is my new website. Not had much time to blog as I have been working on this and moving studio and working on a ballet for film and a live performance and editing screenplays and essays and novels and poems and…

Life moves between the Studio in Shacklewell Lane, Dalston, Dance Studios in East London and the Editing Suite in Stamford Hill. The days of International Travel have gone! The Jet Set life replaced by Life in the Bus Lane.

Working on a new group of paintings, part of my Portrait of Performers, including portrait of amazing Performance Artist Missa Blue.
