List for Old Rope

In Pippy Houldsworth on 29/08/2014 at 08:49

A letter written to you, as I

stand in this gallery room, a

familiar place with ever more

familiar objects surrounding me.

Home comforts, one could say, for

these various forms placed here

signal countless memories. Beautifully

remembered from a time ago while

able to dream and envision of the day

When your head is on my lap once more.

List for Henri Matisse

Charcoal bound

to bamboo sticks

elegantly sketching

and thus revealing

a chapel of art.

Stained windows

lusciously colour

white bare walls

as priest’s chasubles

fly with dashes and lines.

At once, in line with war.

To the battle-hardened

who gave all to the cause,

Even love. Even life

Yet, led by comedic brutalists

intent on boosting already

unnecessary egos, forcing

innocents to march forward

in all forms, one by one.

At once, in line with war

List for Giulio Paolini

In Whitechapel Gallery on 11/08/2014 at 06:59

We, as the audience

guided to our place

by eighteenth century

theatrical valets,

whereby, we are

no longer the

inquisitive viewer,

but the undirected

performance on a

stageless stage.

REMEMBER

THESE WORDS,

FLOOR TO CEILING

WALL TO WALL,

CAN YOU ESCAPE

THE WORDS OF

OUR GENERATION?

BELIEVE IN

OUR DOUBTS

TODAY AND TOMORROW

List for SEDUCED!

In The Fan Museum on 04/08/2014 at 06:58

LA BELLE ÉPOQUE! A beautiful

time was upon us, with petit

poulbots playing in streets of

Montmartre, bathers reclining by

Trouville & Biarritz, Jean de Paléologue

travelling west by railway while

Cassiers Red Star liner drifts by.

DECO DECADENCE! Le Lido is

alive with cabaret, pool swimming

and food galore along Champs-Élysées.

List for Secundino Hernández

We dance right through the lines of paint.

Painting those lines through erased lines.

We attach on, to attack in. Glorious process

of protection and/or structure. Miro-esque

with a quality of removal. Evoke the energetic

instincts apparent within every hulking canvas.

Prominent size, yet delicate strokes striking the

unfamiliar. Creating landscape after landscape

of figurative structural beauty. It all dissolves as

it continues to evolve while always involving paint.
