Marys Dad

L1090985This is for my friend Mary whose Dad died earlier this year. We talked about him and she told me lots of lovely things about him: his religious passion, his love of camper vans, his talent as an artist, his love of imperial leather soap, and his love for his family. She gave me letters and photos and rosaries and all sorts of precious things which I copied and reinterpreted to make this collage. It was all sewn on an old shirt of his and layered and layered until it was right.

where have i been?

Well, I’ve not been posting much here but I have been very busy making and working on new ideas.  Seen loads of exhibitions like Bowie (bit disappointing for me cos I love him so much) the Memory Bank at V and A, 80’s fashion at V and A (made me feel very old looking at all the stuff I used to wear…)Rauchenberg The Bride and Bachelor and recently the collection of his Dante’s inferno work, Ice Age at Brit museum, Litchenstein, Ellen Gallagher, Weekend at Bridport visting artists studios (great fun, will do again) and I joined the Briritsh museum and the V and A which for me is well worth it.  No queing and you get plus one for annumal subscription.  So I’m back at college and will be posting regularly again.  For the moment here’s some of my summer work.
