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.’

40a308a6be89b3aa7e4e7d7352cb528e

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

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

April 28, 2015

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…

#PostContemporary #PortraitPainting. What would it look like? #HouseOfOdwyer

November 6, 2014

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.

Missa Blue14

Work continues on a dance for film project with dancers, Performers, Musicians and Composers.

Also Curating a show of Live performance and Artists Films at an eccentric venue in Hackney.

The portrait of Pierre comes to life! #Ricardo #theCastleofOtranto #Gothic #Symbolism #Decadence #Pygmalion #DorianGray

August 10, 2013

Le Belle et la Bete, Ghostbusters 2, Frida, The Stendhal Syndrome,  Night at the Museum, Harry Potter…  – Films where paintings come to life. Any more? What about books or poems?

My  painting, Portrait of Pierre, has been used for the cover of a novel by Italian author Federico Sabatini. The portrait was then brought to life by artist Mauro F Cardinali… for a performance in Italy.

The animated portrait sings and plays guitar.

What would the portraits below do if they came to life, I wonder?
