HUSH BRITAIN – SPECIAL PURCHASE

Title : HUSH BRITAIN

Original artwork. Acrylic on paper 32x22Inch.

Created 2012

Hush Britain was an early work created while I was in prison during the Olympic games in the summer of 2012.

That was a very hard time in my life. I had been detained in March and was just denied bail and my old life was crushed. I had to close my photography studio and hand my life and myself over to complete uncertainty. I lost control over what would happen next.

Here was where I discovered the calming therapy of painting.

The painful loss of an old life led to a new beginning for me and that is why I have included this work in the special purchase collection. I hope it brings a sense of renewal in the most difficult of times.

UNKNOWN LOVE – SPECIAL PURCHASE

facess-wSPECIAL PURCHASE Title : UNKNOWN LOVE

Original artwork. Acrylic on Paper 32x22Inch.

Created 2012

Unknown love, was the third early work created three months after discovering my new passion for painting and the beginning of my journey in prison, in 2012.

This painting was inspired by a reoccurring dream of a woman standing on the water and whose face I could not see or recognised and that would disappear as I walked toward her. Looking back I can only assume that it was due to the uncertainty of a passionate experience would take place.

That was a very hard time in my life. I had been detained in March and was just denied bail and my old life was crushed. I had to close my photography studio and hand my life and myself over to complete uncertainty. I lost control over what would happen next.

Here was where I discovered the calming therapy of painting.

SPECIAL PURCHASE

Title : DEEP IN THOUGHT

Original artwork. Acrylic on Paper 22x22Inch.

Created 2012

This piece was one of my earlier works from 2012, having discovered the benefits of painting while at the lowest point of my life having landed in prison for retaliatig to an assault from a bouncer at a club.

The inspiration behind this piece was the totl isolation i was experiencing at that time and having had the first visit to the prison library and looked at a book on picasso’s cubist works earlier that day, I wanted to attempt to something with that in mind and this is the end result.

I have selected it for the special purchase collection as I feel that it would be great for it to have a place at someone’s home where it would be appreciated as art and that they see the great chance of adding it to their collection.

LOVING AMY – SPECIAL PURCHASE

SPECIAL PURCHASE

Title : LOVING AMY

Original artwork.

Acrylic on Canvas 60x60cm.

Created 2019

Amy was the first painting I did in the series of Loving Music and has an incredibly special place in my heart due to my love of her music. Her troubled life and her use of art to deal with her mental instability is something I related to and I understood how easily one can spiral out of control at a blink of an eye with unimaginable consequences.

LOVING AMYThroughout that whole series, I used a butterfly to represent the metamorphosis from life to the spirit world and I have chosen this piece to include in the special purchase collection for someone that has close connection with her music and that would enjoy the work.
