Looking forward to transforming the place.

Saw a talk in Fitzrovia last month by Robin Chapple, the WA Greens Councillor for the Mining and Pastoral Region.

The Burrup Peninsula, Western Australia is home to the oldest known rock art in the world, and is a prolific, living gallery, with over a million rock art engravings dating back 30 000 years.

The problem is nearby heavy industry is polluting the site, and the government want to introduce more industry to the area. The whole area should be listed as a World Heritage Site. Currently it’s listed as a National Heritage site.

Find out more here at Creative Spirits or here at Robin’s site where you can find links and contact him directly. (Above, an image shown at the talk as the oldest known depiction of the human face, Photo credit: Ken Mulvaney.)

New postcards, just in! These are available on my website as well as at Keira Rathbone’s upcoming show ‘The Brink;’ a show of collaborative work Keira’s made with several other London artists - including me. Opening at The Vaults Gallery, Waterloo, at the end of this month.

Happily got stuck into a collaboration with Keira Rathbone this week for her upcoming show at The Vaults. See her latest work here.

It involves a lot of wood walking and questing.

Her friend, fellow collaborator & creative, LaToyah is in the process of photographing all of us to promote the show. She was great fun to work with! Can’t wait to see the finished pictures.

'Box-him, Suarez! Box-him, Suarez! Do-not-get-in-volved.'

                                 

I realised why I’m doing what I’m doing today, and it all goes back and gets tangled up with a happy memory of waving this flag around between 1987 - 1989 and it’s entwined with the most frightening thing I’ve ever seen, and seeing Mars energy mastered and channelled with ritual, respect and rhythm is the most powerfully healing thing I’ve seen.
