Courthouse Fri 20 jonathan part 2!

News 20 August 2010 | 0 Comments

I’m going mad with black moths flying around leaving black tracers coming off them veiling the area…. I think I’m really enjoying not using colour, and the black is sooo black and the white is pure white…. is this the antidote to me feeling a little sitfled with my current painting work at home…. maybe…. maybe it’s a cure for what ails me or maybe it’s just snake oil…..  either way todays word is “antidote”.

I better go and buy some charcoal to bring down….. I’m loving no colour, no colour….
On another note, I’m producing some imagery from the photographs I took, they’re not ready yet so I’ll keep working on them….
I decided to print the memories as 6×4 photographs, ’cause they’re pretty much how most people up to recently store their memories….
I just got interested in the fact that all bloody photographs in family albums are generally preposterously insanely happy happy happy……..
they’ve become twisted in my head… everybody holding still and smiling, nothing to see under these grins…. move on to the next one,
we’re happy happy happy…. grinning grinning…. smile dammit,…..I’ve only one snap left………. next……next…… nothing to see…..
don’t ask questions and I won’t tell you no lies……  what…. are you afraid you might remember…….

ahhhhhhhhh  Dr. Caligari leave me alone…..

I might have to print some of these ideas and snippetts…. I always love the idea of being able to see an artists sketch book and how they work….
They did that at an exhibition (yeah yeah yeah I know) in the guggenheim in Bilbao (oooh la la) I can’t remember who it was but they showed
notebooks and sketches, it was beguiling.

I took a peak at Dominic writing down notes on the very first day we met  and I enjoyed watching the notes and marks being made…

right, enough, me gots to go…..

have a good day Magmoth
