OI – PUNK AS…………

I love going to gigs and I love taking photos so logically, for my next collection I plan to do a series of pictures based around the images I took at various concerts (some were taken pre mobile phones, when you had to smuggle a camera in hidden in your knickers)

I also found a beaten up, doodled on and “punk as” copy of 100 Nights at the Roxy on Ebay,  and reproduced the original Roxy advertising posters and put them on A2 perspex.

So with out further ado – heres my original Adam Ant poster – from the teenage bedroom wall years (mixed media on box board A4 – yacht varnished £150 via paypal – email vilebodies@hotmail.com for details)

These are one off pictures – so once its gone its gone xx

ITS WHAT I DO

Artists Statement

A conceptual artist whose work and research centres round the subject of collections and memory.

Member of the printmakers workshop for the past 5 years and works predominantly with photographic lithography and woodcuts.

I like things that look like mistakes, loving the medium of woodcuts and the rawness of the printed image.

My influences are fairly diverse but when in doubt I cant go wrong with Bruce Nauman, Picasso, Max Pechstein, Emil Nolde, Matthew Barney, Helen Chadwick and anything to do with the Flux Movement ……. OH AND GUERNICA!


WHAT GOES AROUND, COMES AROUND AGAIN…

Woke up, fed up and seriously needing a kick start to the creative juices.  Following the close of Axolotl and the death of my lovely husband Derek, I have been sadly lacking in a project to get the proverbial teeth stuck into.  Luckily at the end of last year, when I really needed to lay down some foundations I actually enrolled in a class called images and ideas at the ECA – its only one morning a week but that goodness I had the forethought to sign up.

Going in with no ideas what-so-ever I decided to be a model student and so as they told me. I was given a copy of Stanley Spencer’s “Christ Carrying the Cross” to transcribe – I automatically hated it so turned it upside down to give it a more interesting perspective.  Working with ink and acrylic I covered a quarter of cartridge paper and started to map out negative shapes.

Ok so my behaving lasted about 20 minutes and I flicked through the pages of the book and found this little beauty

mark gertler merry-go-roundMark Gertler- Merry-go-round (oil on canvas from 1916) now at the Tate Gallery – and this bad boy flicked a switch.  It was described as a “hallucinatory horror” and immediately reminded me of my old favourite Nauman and his taxidermy merry-go-round that I saw at the Hamburger in Berlin –  no idea as yet where I am going with this but I have been photographing objects that could spin on an axis (at the Museum on Chamber Street).

Here are some sketches from the Images and Ideas class – to stick to the brief I picked up colour from the Stanley Spencer and eyedropped it into my photoshopped images!!!
