Frosty PicTures!

There's not much to say about these. Just six digital photographs I took while there was a ground frost, during February 2007.

I was looking at texture and surface and pattern I suppose.

Self Portrait & Two Negative Paintings

The Self Portrait (ii) I created when feeling pretty s##tty about myself, earlier today infact. My mood has improved, funnily enough, after reading about secret testing of mind control techniques as used by the US government...

No - hang on, come to think of it, it was not that which cheered me up.

I created this today when I cut down two paintings taped to the wall by gum-strip. I liked what I saw and photographed it. This was the inspiration for the self portrait.

Painting Backlog

These paintings have been sat around in storage for some time waiting to be photographed. One or two date back to 2004, some are more recent, and atleast one was made in 2007.

Still, this is not all the paintings waiting to be photographed. There are a number of canvases from 2006, and some larger paintings made recently, and some dating back to around 2004/2005.

Note: As all these paintings have been placed in the appropriate painting galleries by date, these links will open in new windows/tabs to ease navigating through the images presented here.

Diary of a monster is an illustrated text about the act of drawing intuitively formed symbols.

I have been drawing these symbols for atleast ten years, probably longer. They hover somewhere between writing and visual art, but are not wholly one or the other.
