The Flowers of Romance – In the first series of an ongoing relationship with the ordinary and everyday objects in our shared or isolated lives, I’m encouraging interaction with some of the objects that define me as an individual. These are the things that I might reach for in different times of my day yet do so automatically, without much thought. For example, ‘Maldon Sea Salt’ goes on pretty much everything I eat which, when given further analysis, acts in some way as my maintained and physical connection to Europe – the salt from the sea is an essential part of my physicality.

‘The Flowers of Romance’ is a song by the post-modern/post-punk group called Public Image Ltd (PiL) which was fronted by The Sex Pistols’ lead singer John Lydon. This music formed the bedrock of my early days.

The first series consists of twenty original, framed, paintings all at the same size of 34 x 34 x 5cm.

Artist quality acrylic paint on museum quality stretched linen. The painting also includes a unique numbered hologram certificate of authenticity and is framed with a rounded-edge rose oak floating frame which is ready to hang, signed on the back.

In the next series I will be reaching out to others for their understanding and interpretation of what it is that drives their ordinary and everyday yet ordinarily goes unnoticed. This could be something as simple as a towel wrapped around the person after a shower where the towel acts as a psychological barrier to harm yet is only noticed as such when one questions its ‘other’ purpose.
