I was pleased to be asked to do a wall drawing in the vault artist studios members’ room, formerly the reception area of Tower Street Belfast Met. Pool table, leather sofa and bespoke bar are out of shot.

I’m not certain it is finished, if I work more layers on it I’ll post up the results.

These are¬†finished in the sense that any art work ever is. I could keep working at them adding more layers but judge it’s time to paint over them and start again.

An old piece of work, from around 2010 when Robert Rauschenberg and Mark Bradford were my work’s biggest influences.

Blue Whale are thrilled to have moved in to Vault Artist Studios, alongside almost 90 other creative practitioners. I did a bit of decorating of the outside of our space tonight.

Repetition is an important aspect of my practice, both in drawings and in drumming.

I created this wall drawing by working directly onto the wall of Pollen studios in Belfast. The wall surface was rough and full of character, showing evidence of many past exhibitions in the space.

My performance set-up, utilising both electronic and analogue kit components, a loop station and a Marshall Amplifier remained in the space after my performance on the opening night, as sculptural presences.

I made these two geometric chalk on board pieces as a commission for Art Loves. They are both 110cm squared and to be hung as a diptych.

I’ve been playing with digital variations on the ‘charged’ shape from the last post, I’m working towards a gallery installation early next month that will be painted directly on to the walls. The installation will involve repetition and variation of the colour of the shape.

These digital renderings are extremely crude, but provide a sound means of testing ideas.

angular form

This is another summer drawing, created with a pre determined set of rules. White chalk on black wall continues the mathematical, scientific blackboard aesthetic of recent work. The form is composed of sharp angled triangles repeated to form a curved whole. Evidence of mistakes and revisions contribute to a sense of the organic, the working out of ideas.

Spiral From 2

A recreation of an earlier work using black chalk on a white wall at Framewerk gallery in Belfast. This drawing was the basis of a ten minute sound piece exploring order and chaos which Ben Behzadafshar and I performed in the gallery. He played guitar and I drummed. It was part of the month long BASS sound art season in the gallery in June of this year.

The drawing obeyed the same governing rules as the original but the results are subtly different.
