shardcore on the radio [again]

As part of the promotional campaign for MASS, Sam and I are appearing on Radio Reverb tomorrow. You can tune in 97.2FM if you’re in Brighton, or online at http://www.radioreverb.com/index.php?id=listen.

We’re on between 4pm and 6pm GMT, which is 12 mid-day EST, 9am PST.

I will be recording the show and uploading it here after the broadcast, if you can’t catch it live.

The General (2008)

The third MASS painting, the General. The Minotaur of Greek mythology was the result of the union of Pasiphae and a bull. He dwelt inside the labyrinth and devoured anyone who entered. Here the minotaur is presented as an Army General – you can draw your own conclusions. This painting is to form part of a triptych, watch this space for the other two…

Sam (2008)

My second MASS portrait, this one of painter Sam Hewitt, my co-conspirator in the MASS.

I approached this canvas in a different manner than usual, using sticky gobs and smears of thickened acrylic media. Larger canvases need larger brushes, and larger gestures. I’m aiming to produce a new portrait each week up until the show in May, and in the spirit of aesthetic experimentation you will be seeing some changes in style from piece to piece.
