These are some recent examples of my paintings with a common on-going theme: all are hybrids of humans with animal attributes, and vice-versa. Mostly, the ideas are from mythology, (often Ancient Egyptian), or from folk-lore or from alchemical imagery, with other ideas and feelings from the depths of my imagination.
An evening of sonic adventures, curated by singer/multi-instrumentalist Jowe Head (Swell Maps, Television Personalities, etc) and cellist/vocalist Jasmine Pender (Rotten Bliss). They shall perform together as ELEVENTH HOUR ADVENTISTS. Guest performers include MISS ROBERTS (Rude Mechanicals) , and SEVEN-HEADED RAVEN. The evening shall feature various exciting collaborations between the various performers. The Horse Hospital, Colonnade, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 1JD
