A letter to all you the house of o’dwyer patrons x

I was enjoying the deluge here in London, but it did go on far for too long!

+ Editing novel and writing lyrics

Crouch down

bent double

over the counter

blunt force trauma

fill the empty interior

shut me up,

shut me down

manage the beast

stop the hysteria,

work for the tongue

roughly speaking

worship and adore

under the weather,

Come in my eye

post traumatic stress disorder

Let me go

out patient

I can suck at it myself

taste the meat

feel the heat…

Art! What are you saying?

May 30, 2017

Questions

What are you saying? What are you doing? Is it a photo shoot?

Is it a video portrait? Is it a screen test? Is it simulacra?

Is it surface? Is it depth? Is it dance? Is it symbolic?

Is it reality? Is it fashion? Is it production values?

Is it mime? Who is performing? Is it voyeuristic?

Who’s playing who? Is it a pathological? Is it exquisite?

Is it for the hell of it? Is it decoration?

Is it exploitation? Is it a bad pun? Is it exhibitionist?

Is it movement, colour, sound? Is it fascination?

Is it conceptual? Is it bogus? Is it a love story?

Where am !? Who is Ze? It’s not personal?

Is it?

 

What the f*^% happened to me! Hackney Wick!

May 30, 2017

 

Pruning roses, making vegetable stock, building structures with bamboo ! Whaaaaat?

Recently i had to move, and ended up with a little house in hackney wick. It has a garden, parking and a spare room. My mother designed the garden 10 years ago. Its real pretty with Japanese maples, roses and a cute Summer house / cabin.

It is not a shed!

However, i can not for the life of me find a housemate! And i can’t afford not to have one. My friend MD suggested Airbnb, and Wow! It’s all gone amazingly well.

Three were booked for my spare room. 4 turned up. The summer house became a beautiful cabin with double bed, shelves and storage.

It is not a shed.

Everyone was happy, i think!

Now i rent out the spare room and the cabin to some really lovely people. All are allowed free roam of the main house of course.

All the doors in the road are black. I had to go pink!

That’s the garden and cabin, which is now also pink.

Feels like my financial woes are over. For now. In getting the house ready for guests, i have become addicted to Amazon Prime.

First it was important things i needed immediately. Mattresses, quilts, antique indian bowls… they would arrive the next day.

Now it’s lampshades handmade from kimono silk, lace effect waterproof table cloths, jewel like drawer handles, cherub sculptures… !

Vegan Update:

Yes i am still vegan, although there was an incident with a slab of mature cheddar and an anchovy!

Off to my favourite city Venice in two weeks, with two amazing new friends from the Dalston Ballet crew. Gonna check out the biennale, do a bit of dancing and filming, and drink Campari from dawn til dusk! Heaven.

This is from a recent performance with the lovely qila and ariella, those friends i mentioned!

The Chanteuse

 

Wandering star

I never talk about my bad traits

glamour from a Gilda age

jewel personalities,

London calling

mix and match of the day

beyond the beach

Switzerland without skis

the demolition man

unsteady odyssey

street of shame

human capital

every breath you take defensive

behaviour odd to ominous

not just another maestro

an artist finds his groove

folk of ages

avant-garde explosion

pay up, pay up and play the game

let the field of the mind fall fallow

please hang up and try again.

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.

20170323_231142

‘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.’

@DalstonBallet – @HackneyShowroom #Contemporary #dance #performance #art with visiting associate artists programme @houseofodwyer

April 25, 2017

Love working with the Dalston Ballet. Currently wearing many hats; Choreographer, stylist, libretto, dresser, special effects, film editor… and now performer!

I performed the role of ‘Artist’ in Dalston Ballet’s contemporary dance performance art work at Hackney Showroom early in April.

I shot this video while doing it, which means it must be Art! It also means you dont see me at work!

 

 

 

This video of Artist’s studio shows just one of four works we performed that night including:

Principessa

Bleed in Bleed Out

Marine

Everything went to plan, mostly.

Hope to take it to more venues this year.
