Here are some elements of new works in progress. The paintings are details from a series based on earthworks and have all been tipped on their sides. The photographs are all of parts of Dorset as seen from a train window. As of fairly recently I have started using elements of my own paintings in my digital constructs.

And here is a finished digital construct…available as a C-Type photographic print on archival paper from my Big Cartel shop. For a more comprehensive description and for shipping details click here.

In early October 2019 David Cook and I visited Peter Doig: Paintings at Michael Werner, and Cy Twombly: Sculpture at Gagosian, both in London. Afterwards, we discussed the shows by email. You can read the resulting conversation starting here.

Street Portrait (for and of Tariq), 2020

So my lucky streak continues…I ran into Tariq today, and he was great about me taking a few shots of him. This is the fifth and my favourite. Thanks very much Tariq!

Tree and Shard, 2020
Living in the Gaps (Landscape study), digital construct, dimensions variable, 2019

As some of you may know, I’m a fan of the group, The Fall, whose chief creator Mark E Smith sadly died in January 2018. This post is named after a 7″ single which was released by the group in 1982. The image above has nothing to do with The Fall, except I suppose tangentially – I’ve listened to them so much their aesthetic must have seeped into my process somewhere…

The painting below on the other hand I did “for MES” – it didn’t start out that way, but it as it neared completion it seemed to fit…anyway…

Diary Images

Spend so much of my time looking down nowadays…these were both taken in London in the first week of the year.

Patti Fogarty

I’d like to dedicate this post to Patti Fogarty, who was a brilliant street photographer, portraitist and blogger (and one of the first people I “met” on WordPress). Her photographs were really something else – a celebration. I miss them and I miss her presence online. There’s a very nice tribute to Patti on Monochromia and you can see her work on her blog Nylon Daze.
