The Glass and Perspex Gallery

'The Rites of Spring'

After Stravinsky’s third ballet, literally, life is a dance to the death, the fallen king, the heir apparent, wild horses, lovers, and the Blue Angel who sanctifies true spirit, true faith in life.

Painting behind Perspex. Measures length 140 cm x height 100 cm framed in white, lightly sprayed on wood.

Cadences of Betrayal

Painted entirely behind toughened glass using both acrylic and polyester based spray paint, two worn out Stanley knives! And carried out over a non stop marathon of 56 hours in my studio. (If I had known beforehand I’d have picked a charity and sold tickets, hey ho).

This is a mood picture and does not in anyway depict an actual place but is strewn with benign and integrated symbols, the powerful yet muted charge of a wild boar! The sad young woman, who though sad is almost lost in some other unfathomable reverie… the structure…a church maybe? Certainly in part ruin…it’s late evening…hardly much daylight remains. Was our sad figure atop of her battlements the ruin of a lover that never showed, all promises are words empty until we all can say we know another’s mind, and that our neighbour is known to us also, and he is a man we can all trust.

Not yet framed, the artwork measures length 108c, x 76cm in height. Material toughened glass and sprays. First one to straddle 2020 with the new year of 2021.

The Comet

Painted behind Museum Glass. Finished in white frame. measures length 103 cm x height 73 cm

We will always have omens, warnings, and it is increasingly believed or at least, suspected, our ancient civilizations perhaps had a greater understanding of basic astrology, through the position, or change in the stars.

A comet rarely was good news…At best fortelling some violent rift or big change.
