I wrote a big long spiel to go with this earlier but it wouldn't download for some reason so I'm not wasting my time again. This is a still from one of my favourite films "The Rebel" starring Tony Hancock. This is the bit where the nagging landlady played wonderfully by Irene Handl tries to get into Tony's garret to see what the noise was all about. He's secretly been carving a "hulking great thing" out of concrete bolted together from "bits of the town hall, the war memorial and the library steps" and he calles it "Aphrodite At the Water-hole"!
A kind of diary, a log, a ramble, nothing to do with the Flowerpot Men. My life as an artist, a collagist, a rubber stamper, a networker, a dad , a letter writer and a postcard maker. Observations about this and that in no particular order.
I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
