“Art offers a relief from the complete boredom of the repetition of things”
-Charles Blackman in conversation with Frank Thompson, 1977

“Art makes you re-see the world around you, it makes you step up your sensibilities. It makes you realise that sort of blue flower you passed by for 20 years and not really noticed, is not only a really beautiful flower, but it is something that makes you recognise that beauty”
-Charles Blackman in conversation with Frank Thompson, 1977

Flashback to 2009:
'Tea Party – Encroaching Shadows' (acrylic on canvas, 760 × 610)

This painting was inspired in part by Lewis Carroll’s mad Hatter’s tea party and Charles Blackman’s 'Alice in Wonderland' series (elements of the naïve and the surreal), but was also shaped by an abiding fascination with story-telling in a broader sense, and particularly with the significance of the ‘dark forest’ as a motif.  The forest represents not only our taste for the challenges and risks of adventuring into the unknown, but is also the place where we sometimes find ourselves lost and submerged by. It is a consuming and elemental force in its own right.  The dark forest represents both the promise of escape and the fear of capture; it is both benign and sinister, motherer and smotherer.

Removing these unwanted brown spots, otherwise known as FOXING!
This type of foxing is growth of mildew caused by being exposed to excessive moisture or humidity. To prevent this from happening it is important to keep the area as dry as possible. Kitchens and bathrooms are not ideal for works on paper to be hung.
