‘A very unmodern phenomena’ (detail/crop)

From the series - ‘Faces, forms & fragmented figments.’

I imagine that this was what it was like inside the head of Jackson Pollock.
If red is for rage and passion.
.
It’s well known that he had a lifelong battle with the bottle.
But contrary to what is thought, his most productive periods of painting came whilst he was able to maintain sobriety.
He owed everything he had achieved to his wife Lee Krasner.
A talented painter in her own right who sacrificed her own career in order to see him succeed.
.
It was during a six month period of no alcohol that he was able to produce his most well known works.
.
As the saying goes, “Behind every great man, there is a great woman.”

“You sure you want to be with me
I've nothing to give
Won't lie and say this lovin's best
Leave us in emotional peace
Take a walk, taste the rest
No, take a rest
.
I see you digging a hole in your neighborhood
You're crazy but you're lazy
No need to live in a lean-to
Your troubles must be seen to seen to
Money like it's paper with faces I remember
I drink on a daily basis
Though it seldom cools my temper
It never cools my temper...”

“We’re all just perishable marks”
.
This was painted after a break up in a relationship.
The thought or rather the emotion was tied up in the saying, “Kicked to the curb,” or tossed aside like a piece of rubbish/trash.
.
In a throw away society it seems that feelings & people can be treated like an empty can or sweet wrapper... and just as easily discarded. After all there’s so much more choice to fulfil the short term craving of affection.
.
This was an attempt at reminding myself that I too can be recycled, can become anew and restart.
.
The black bird of death features, as do symbols for recycling...
Rain clouds note a lyric from Bob Dylan’s ‘Man in me’.
The graffiti under the central rain cloud is a reference to the, “Dirty streets” which were to be washed clean by the rain - from the film ‘Taxi Driver, by Martin Scorsese.

After having gone to a sweat lodge ceremony I came away with the thought that the common denominator for us all, was that we’re all here because of a unison of love.

Painted freehand - whilst going cold turkey (the only way that worked for me) from nicotine.

Background to this painting:

“I see colours in sounds so music will often be on when painting.
Five man army by massiveattack played at the beginning of this piece.”

Essentially I paint what I see in the music through the colours of sounds.

Acrylic, oil paint stick and oil on canvas

Partly inspired by these words/lyrics :
.
“These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
.
The way we look to a distant constellation
That's dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don't cry baby, don't cry
Don't cry”
.
