Van Gogh and Britain – Tate Britain, London – ART 2019

LHS III

Van Gogh and Britain – Tate Britain, London Excited at the prospect of Van Gogh and Britain, I made a bee line for it in April 2019. After last year’s visit to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, I still had an appetite for some more of Vincenzo’s work. There’s…

The Ludovico Technique – March 2019

LHS III

Inspired by my recent visit to the Bonnard exhibition at the Tate, I found some new inspiration (including a wee nod to Arshile Gorky) and some new colours to add to my ever increasing palette. For fans of A Clockwork Orange everywhere. I’m quite liking it!

Adieu Tristess – March 2019

LHS III

The first work of 2019. Occasionally, you have to break it down, to build it up again. Created after a particularly difficult time, this is a painting of hope and looking towards the sun… to let the shadows fall behind.

The Loneliness of Adam – August 2018

The Loneliness of Adam This was painted during the Summer of 2018, after a disastrous trip to Holland where I lost a brand new iPhone with all my Dutch contacts in it. I managed to salvage the trip by visits to the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum. I’ve never…

The Great Gig in the Sky – July 2018

The Great Gig in the Sky - LHS

The Great Gig in the Sky Now this represents something of another turning point, and this is another keeper for me. I tried this on the vertical and I love the blending of the colours – even Daddy liked this! For a while now, I have been toying with the…

Mist Opportunity – June 2018

Mist Opportunity - LHS

Mist Opportunity This was painted after my disastrous trip to Amsterdam in the Summer of 2018. This is one of the few works that I have decided to keep. This will always remind me of that trip and how not go about travelling abroad. It is a distinct departure from…

The Glimmering – September 2017

The Glimmering This technique is now becoming my signature style I think. These are the works that give me the most pleasure when painting them. I find a great deal of peace wash over me when doing so. What do they signify? They signify whatever you want them to, see…

Transmogrification for Beginners #1 – October 2017

Transmogrification for Beginners #1 A playful little number this, not really sure what I’m trying to say or what it actually means, but it remains one of my favourites that’s for sure.

Teetering in the Sane Zone – May 2017

Teetering in the Sane Zone For Emma. Not sure this works entirely, I find it a bit too dark, but as it was for someone special, I thought I’d include it.

LHS NoNuPle – April 2017

LHS NoNuPle A quirky experiment, possibly looking at ways of venturing into Photoshop and a slightly different medium. 9 Shots of my eye after Warhol – bit obvious, but fun!

Idle in the Twilight – March 2017

Idle in the Twilight Following on from “The Change”, this seems to be the way the work is progressing now. I’m trying to capture a more ephemeral feeling. Light and airy.

The Unattainable Limit – November 2016

The Unattainable Limit I’m rather partial to this one, and haven’t used green very often. I think I need to revisit this as a colour as it soothes me when I look at it. What do you think is the significance of the darker line? It seems to creep into…

Delugional – October 2016

Delugional  Quite interesting this, I sprayed some water on the paint as it was drying and ended up with this as a result… it is something I want to return to in a larger capacity in the future as this is only on a small canvas.
