Final image of "Subtitled". Just needs a few minor tweaks and then it's set to go.
Also with this painting having a sound recording of a small extract from a book read in French.

This idea is still very much being processed.
Started out by looking at subtitled films and how when you watch them, because you are concentrating so much on what you're reading, you miss parts. When looking back you only remember significant scenes, and you miss the scenes that involve transition or have no action on dialogue. From this I looked at "the any space-whatever". A term used by the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, to describe a scene such as a station, or the tube. A place where the character travels from one place/scene to another.
The "Any Space-Whatever" was a term which already exsisted and was used to describe a place of transit between places of importance and that it is a homogeneous, de-singularizing space.
Deleuze argued that it was actually the opposite and that in these spaces characters and relationships are formed.
Taking this into account I wanted to display an " any space-whatever" that took both theories of it into account. So I wanted it to be an anonymous space but personal to me. That's why I decided to paint this hallway. It doesn't hold any personal qualities and looks like any other hallway, but it's my hallway that I pass through everyday so is personal to me.

Below is the painting without any text. But I wanted to go back to the original thought/ idea so added the text to see if it would work. Ignore the text, from a song. Very lame and incase you cared its from a song called "That Home" by the Cinematic Orchestra.
I think if I find the right words to go with it, it could work.

I bet this doesn't make any sense to anyone else. Oh welllll

When I was younger my gran gave me a book on how to draw horses. Needless to say, they were pretty much all I would draw. It's a habit now I'll probably never get rid of.

apologetic shoulder blades

Just an idea at the moment. On paper with acrylic. Want to do more of this but on a bigger scale.

suprasternal notch

Almasy: This... this, the hollow at the base of a woman's throat, does it have an official name?

Music recommendation? err maybe not. I listen to instrumental stuff when I work, lyrics get distracting.

Album work above is for a composer called Max Richter entitled 'Infra'
The music was for a ballet choreographed by Wayne McGregor and also collaborated with Julien Opie. Opie's works displayed in the background, the figures made up of LED lights. Meant to represent a street scene whilst the dancers showed the interaction between people.

Listen here

Best ones are infra 5+8.
as shown here:

The Blue Notebooks is also worth a good listen.

Sorting through all old photos that I once took.

Used to have to wake up at a ridiculous hour every morning for college. During winter, this was what was normally seen outside of my bedroom window. Didn't edit the colour or anything in these in any way.

More old work..
Set of three paintings looked at water and then portraits. The three meant to all link together.


This was done about two years ago. Was for a project entitled "grotesque" so looked at old peoples hands. Exaggerated the features like the veins and colours.

I wish I was a tree

Made from rolled up pages from an old book.


My most recent project was on caves. Was a big subject so looked at 3 elements from them.

Number 1: Crystals

Bought one of those kids grow your own crystal sets.
This kind of reminds me of space.
