However, if you can't make the opening, the show will continue through October 29, 2016… Continue reading… 0 comments

Making babies should be exciting, fun, and never a chore. It's about keeping it sexy and romantic while you are trying to conceive. The Fertile Fizz is a compelling book combining wonderful advice from fertility expert Jani White while adding an erotic twist that tackles head-on the undermining emotions of not conceiving, with 45 illustrations by yours truly and erotic poetry interspersed throughout. Take a look at the Kickstarter project and become a backer so that we can get this special book published. www.kickstarter… Continue reading… 0 comments

To see the exhibition of abstract american painters circa 1940 - 1960. This exhibition is vast and with far too many paintings to absorb in one visit. (A topic for a future blog, do museums curate such large exhibits in order to bring people back and make more money?). As a very figurative painter myself, I've always had issues with understanding abstract art and mostly have to follow my gut. For instance, I completely feel the genius of a Jackson Pollock but in an entirely subjective way. The passion shows through in his paintings but the paintings themselves don't make sense to me. I am a lot more comfortable with De Kooning's more figurative works as well as his colour palette. Painters like Barnett Newman leave me confused and uncomfortable… Continue reading… 11 comments

On Valentine's Day this year, Birmingham, Alabama hosted their very first Erotic Art Exhibition complete with belly dancers, (they were fabulous) masks, flashlights and most importantly, some really wonderful artwork. Leo Ticheli the organiser of this innovative event, unsure if he'd be run out of town or not, courageously rounded up his artists from both the immediate area and some of us from further afield to put together this event. Having been invited to attend and given a special mask to wear, I just as courageously headed south with a few of my paintings and drawings to lend a New York touch to the affair. The event brought in probably about four or five hundred people, we even witnessed a line at the door to get in… Continue reading… 3 comments

I am very moved by the collaboration between Mike and myself. Gods and Men is a piece that has a history spanning over two years. My initial desire to create the painting. Mac's exquisite ballet whilst hanging Sol for me and Sol's absolute dedication; a wonderful and moving performance art as I watched awestruck these two men bond in an unusual and unique situation. So much moving beauty and so much trust. My overwhelming responsibility to record and create that moving beauty on my paper. Then there is David's part in filming the whole thing (as part of a documentary that I am hoping will soon be finalised) as I drew my original drawing posted here… Continue reading… 2 comments

A few weeks ago, I was wandering around in Artid and found myself in Michael Moran's studio. http://artid.com/members/bamboobt/ I was immediately fascinated by Mike's stones and spent a long time in his studio looking at his work and reading his blogs. I didn't contact Mike. However, about three days later I received an email from him telling me he liked my work too and would I consider a collaboration with him. I always pay attention to the universe and believe there are no coincidences. I did not need to think about it or be persuaded. Mike has already started working with one of my images, Gods and Men and you can see the first piece of work in his blog. Mike is going to video tape the whole process and he and I will be writing a joint blog on our collaboration… Continue reading… 4 comments
