Exquisite Corpse

exquisite_corpse

Unique canvas 105cm x 75cm
The work was created using photographs taken in the modified Mighty Booth
at the Royal Academy of Art on the 19th of February 2011 for the Club
Monaco UK launch.
These photographs were cut and pasted, in a manor based loosely on the
Exquisite corpse technique invented by Surrealists, at the beginning
of the 20th century. The work will be auctioned at Sotherby’s on the 22nd of March, the proceeds going to the Royal Academy of Art.

Dollar Stencil

DSC_3220

Initially this was half cut for the Diet Life work last year. Only half of the Dollar was needed in the composition,  and as it took days to cut, a bloody good reason was needed to finish this finger destroying thing off. At last the reason was found and i finished this stencil off for the center piece of a commissioned work in Victoria, London.

Capture at last!

capture

At  Last, its taken months, but the capture series is finished. Nine 40x 40 cm canvases that depict cultural cctv moments from a London centric perspective. “The CCTV camera is the perfect icon for Britain today, summing up the nature of the changing relationship between civil society and political state. They are an innovation in which Britain leads the world both technologically and in usage and are the visible manifestation of so many things which happen out of sight. It is almost impossible to avoid their gaze for an entire day and sitting like steel crows on their perches above us, truly they are emblematic of modern Britain.” Perry de Havilland
