Hudson Mohawke, purveyor of many a monstrous bliptastic onslaught of sound. I put this on whenever my energy levels start sinking and coffee isn’t enough (happening a lot lately). Works every time. Play at loud volume.
No no, its not the 6th season of The Wire with my much speculated starring role as Jimmy McNulty’s younger cousin over from Ireland to clean up the streets of West Baltimore by, er.. painting them. Its a new series on Sky Arts entitled ‘Tim Marlow Meets’ where Mr Marlow (above left), director of exhibitons at London’s White Cube, meets a number of creative figures to discuss their favourite works of art.
The series includes film director Mike Leigh, American crooner Tony Bennett, funny Python and wonderful wanderer Michael Palin, singer Renee Fleming and British fashion legend Sir Paul Smith. Mr Smith (above right) has bought one of my pieces from Weekend Warriors (below) so hopefully he’ll say something nice.
You can watch a 3 minute clip of the show here or if you’re old school you can watch it when it goes out on Sky Arts 1 this Thurs at 8.30pm.
Ian from Wallkandy came round on Saturday to take a few shots of my studio as my next show gains momentum. It opens in the new Laz space on Rathbone Place Oct 30th. I follow the Mighty Micallef, Yikes.
So anyway, Ian came round with his big bag of lenses and interrupted my shamen-like painting trance. But he did take some nice shots thanks be to Jaysus. The pix above are of the maquette of the gallery space that I painstakingly threw together with a bit of card and some tape. The black shapes represent the pieces that I’m working on. They won’t be black when they’re finished, hopefully.
All pix bellow are sexy teaser shots of some of the works in progress. Can you see what it is yet?
