NEW SOLO SHOW IN NOVEMBER 2022 AT THE BEN OAKELY GALLERY GREENWICH LONDON SE10

 

A WHOLE SERIES OF  NEW LARGE OILS 

 

My lifelong subject matter has been 'The Sublime' which pivots on the Beauty/horror axis. Post  pandemic, a  seismic shift has occurred, tipping the balance towards Beauty, now barely tinged with trepidation of the unknown. Enough with the horror,  celebrate LIFE. Consequently my new large scale work, has  changed orientation, and explores a new format for mark making using a very different pallette and colour combinations. Flat colour fields have emerged, supporting those  floating  gaseous oil colour, mazes of drips and glazes, creating a vulnerable fragile beauty. 

As this new reality beckons for  BAMBI et al, A Brave New World awaits us.......  see my instagram for current work in progress.  This 2022 show follows on from several exhibitions AT BEN OAKLEY GALLERY, (Compulsive Beauty 2014, Vertigo 2016, and  PAINTOPOLIS 2019   

 

The Pecking Order Etchings (see gallery) have now been published, alongside original 'Beat generation' Poets,Ginsberg, Kerouac, and GerardMalanga, who co-authored INTERVIEW magazine with Warhol, starred in several of his films, a fine poet  and photographer ......

Or so they say. This weekend, Dazed flew out to Lagos, Nigeria for the third annual MTV Africa Music.

 

Awards and spent a few days and some late nights meeting rap, R&B and kuduro superstars from across Africa: names like Banky W, Fally Ipupa, Daddy Owen, Cabo Snoop and Radio & Weasel, from Angola to Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond, all huge stars in their own countries, selling truckloads of records despite rampant piracy and a rickety music industry. These guys are kind of the Jay Zs and Snoops of Africa, basically.
