It’s all just too precious; but as an artist your work is meant to be seen and so it has to be brought to a point where it can be exhibited somewhere, but I need to find a way to both do this while inducing more ‘flow’
He stands on his box with a joke of distain,
driven by forces well known to mankind,
our freedoms attacked to be all we can dream,
blind and ignorant to suffering and pain,
It’s the biting east wind after an early morning squall,
Rosy on our cheeks as we scurry to the outhouse,
It’s the hardy early bloomer, glimmering in the hedgerow sun,
Rain storms gather on the horizon, towering tall cumulonimbus...
I wake up but cannot get up, I don’t see how or why.
I recall a time of freedom, yes with worry, but with a childlike freedom.
Dwelling on past mistakes revel in uncertain comfort.
A familiar drill a punishment for unresolved thoughtlessness.Read More

The crows call out up upon the roof top,
They know what coming it’ll reach us all,
We are not defined by a single day,
But to live right now, right in the moment and observe,Read More
Be careful of the grass in the middle of the road,
Walk to the side my mother would say,
Don’t step on the unknown pasture,
Be careful it poses a hidden danger,Read More
We sit and talk over cups of tea,
Laid out before us cakes and sweet,
The weather the match, what a game? Did you see?
The price of oil, how ill is that man down the street,Read More
Happy Dystopia… it is a world we inhabit where, in the interest of a quite life we are happy to ceed control of our countries and our democracies to large corporations and an international court system that has established a U.S. inspired hegemony, teaching us to believe in the inalienable rights of Marlboro to sell cigarettes to our children as opposed to our rights to ask them to pay their fair share of taxes…Read More
So just like with sports content [where in the name of more choice the average fan wanting to see all of their preferred team’s televised football matches has to cough up twice as much for the privilege] anyone who wants to see both sides of one of these paintings will have to purchase both halves of the painting in question! Thank heavens for the competition authority I say, and pity the fool who buys only one half and decides for whatever reason to hold off buying the second, because as soon as the money hits my pocket, I will know that there is a demand for the product and the price of the second half will quickly double… Well if Art is supposed to hold a mirror to society - why the hell can’t I get Me some?Read More
it was a clever take on the much overused phrase ‘that we can’t increase taxes on the rich because the capital will surely flee the country’ but is the inverse not also true, and we here have never had a problem cutting services for the poor, forcing the skilled young people that you need to create a successful economy to pack their bags and flee, the cream of Irish youth, both the nascent business men and the artists alike, have for too long been asked to take that short boat trip to Wales…Read More
Because for me at this stage the paintings will have served their purpose, When painting I like to use the canvas as a mathematician uses a blackboard…Read More
