By happy coincidence - serendipity! - (I will get tired of this, but not before you) the exhibition is on for 23 days and since there are 23 paintings, for the sheer hell of it I will be posting about a painting every day throughout . . .
Vagabond - A Bohemian Fairy Tale. Acrylic & mixed media on scrap wallpaper and canvas 42 x 60cm.
Also available serendipituously as an A2 print - also 42 x 60 cm.
"You shouldn't go walking in these spooky old woods alone . . ." Starter for ten, video at the end. It is . . .
The star-crossed vagabond is taking this cautionary tale in her stride. Beset by the bones of the mexican reaper, the gothic red wrought-iron bars can't hold this high-spirited angel on earth down. Her eager beaver companion Babycham Bambi, Bang! has been shot in the head. They've literally thrown the book at her. It's wicked grinning face barely covers the depravity inside. Only the devil in a smoking-jacket stands in her way. Not that that is the first thing you would notice about him . . . perhaps the badly crafted spade mask covered in jade, his long and flowing mane of scalped blonde hair, the evil sprite flying out of his pocket. He's no match to her kick-ass ways, travelling is her creed and she's got to keep moving. A few swift stiletto kicks in the head and she's on her way - running, walking, kicking-high those vagabond shoes,and dancing, singing out loud, flying high above the clouds!
Or. Whatever. You might want to conjure up something else. Amongst all of the inspiration for style is the main element - fiction. Making it up as I go along. It's all intuitive. Starts as one thing, ends as many others. And, that is where the fun is. They don't have to be anything other than what they appear to be and since art is so subjective, blaaahhh, if I hadn't just made all of this just up you would have you're own interpretation. I'd like to get Waldemar Jauszczak and his suitcase on here. He'd soon sort it out.
And the answer is - a right bunch of groovy bohemians if ever there was -
Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs - L'il Red Riding Hood. AAOOOWWW!!!!
