new film – OLD NORSE

I was invited to the far reaches of Norway during the summer and I took the opportunity to make my 3rd film with film-maker supremo Andrew Telling. I think this is by far our best film. Pared back and super minimal he really captured the atmosphere of one of the most Northerly and isolated parts of Europe. This is one for the headphones, the music is composed and performed by both Andrew and Lucinda Chua. Watch the film for the music alone, I guarentee it’s worth it.

Big thanks to Pøbel for inviting me to Komafest and also to everyone from Vardø who welcomed us with grace and warmth.

 

 

Middle East part 1 – Tel Aviv

I spent a week in the Middle East, painting in both Israel and Palestine. I brought my boy Andy with me to film it all so we’ll have a short lil film coming out at some stage. It was one of those trips where you’ve no idea whats ahead. You can only prepare for so much and remain open to all eventualities. I think I need a holiday.

I gotta say thanks to Know Hope and Zero Cents in Tel Aviv for all their help and hospitality. Thats what I love about this world of ours, you can contact an artist in another country that you’ve never met and they’ll sort you out.

So this is the spot that I painted with Know Hope in Tel Aviv. Fantastic central location.

The view from our rooftop.

And then we climbed in here..

And I painted this.

Shopping

Nothing makes a Corkman feel at home like finding his local drink on the other side of the world.

Local street action..

And a few days later I got stuck in to the security barrier in Bethlehem. I’ll try and get my photos from Palestine up in the next few days.
