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 . . .
Veronica Lake - Smoke Party Dynamite. Acrylic & mixed media on paper and canvas 70 x 100cm.
Also available as a 42 x 60 (A2) limited edition print.
I first remember seeing Veronica Lake in I Married A Witch with Fredric March as a half-wit child and it is a film that has stood the test of time, all the way back to the 1600s. A great film. Her witches party hat can be seen on the right, emblazoned with stars reflecting the pink one on her forehead. The glamrock spirit of Roy Wood & Ayshea Brough lives on. Peek-a-boo! the SMOKE comes from a hand-painted smokehouse sign on Brighton beach, the party is what a party is, festa italiano, pure DYNAMITE 100% explosive, Kip Tyler on the record machine, black cat on fire and the nasty sprite with the baseball bat is having none of all that, he's going to beat the living shibitshibob out of that fancydan Pierrot from here to next Tuesday. Yeah, see you next Tuesday. Clown!
