Said the Hero to the Thief – Lazarides Gallery, Newcastle.

 

Back from Siena and straight up north for my show at Lazarides Newcastle, my first time showing exclusively abstract work.

Said the Hero to the Thief refers to a conversation between two opposing forces, with each painting appearing as snippets of dialogue. Heroes and thieves are social types at opposite ends of the spectrum and I gave them all latin titles to heighten that idea of heroism and Godliness. The Thief refers to society’s attitude to graffiti.
