Scott Amedure memorial - (Events epilogue)

Important foreword regarding this memorial: The following entry, an epilogue to a three part memorial on Scott Amedure followed by a personal afterword, makes reference to a terrible tragedy that occurred in Chicago, Illinois (March 6 1995) and Lake Orion, Michigan (March 9 1995). A tragedy of exploitation, homophobia, ignorance, ambush, cowardice, hypocrisy, injustice, and denial. An incident that, as a gay man, has really troubled me, hurting my view of the world, of society, of my community and especially of its activists. Hurting me so much that I had to write this cathartic memorial; one of the most difficult and painful text I have eve

My Bio
The work I produce is a multifaceted response to the world around me...it takes many forms, from abstract to representational.
The work tends to be activated by a strong socio-ecological-philosophical connection I have with a particular subject matter that has grabbed my attention; or projects that have inspired me toward in depth explorations particularly concerning the natural world.
I prefer to work outside the box as far as mediums are concerned and see the medium as a vehicle by which to be stimulated and create work. I see my work as part of a journey... an on going visual dialogue with the world around me.

Hi I hope you are keeping well just a few down loads of art done this year along with words of inspiration ... Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time. Georgia O'Keeffe Re...

Reconnecting with nature being inspired by others

Reconnecting with nature being inspired by others

I now often find inspiration from nature it's a place to reconnect with my senses...The sights-vibrant to calming colours ; complex patterns, waxy smooth- rough textures. Touch-soft, smooth, hard, cold, hot,. Sounds of the  buzzing bee, the wind -rustling leaves in a breeze, to the last bird song late at night. The smell of sweet honey suckle or the musty earth after the rain...all these can be incorporated into visual arts. I have read as humans we have 54 senses most we don't ever use - due to the modern way of life... Artist Franz Krajcberg's own recognisation that nature...in the Brazilian Rainforest, 'gave him back his humanity' after t

Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten."                                                                                          Amazing Work by Indigenous person painting The photo on the left above is an image taken at the Eden Projects Rainforest Biome many of these w
