Other Subjects

Occasionally I paint other things as well as Manchester. This is some of it, although even then it may be Manchester related.

You Have No Say in Anything At All. (50x70cm Acrylic on board.) Painted 2017. FOR SALE Contact for details

 A change from my usual landscapes, to express a point I feel is increasingly true these days. I painted this from my own imagination rather than using any actual subject matter, other than a few preliminary sketches I made, scribbled at a pub table, when I got the idea. This helped stop me inclining to a more realist work which I wanted to avoid. I tweaked the painting till I got it how I wanted, paying particular attention to the facial expressions of the five figures.

The Last House on the Street Sml

The Last House on the Street. (50x40cm Acrylic on board.) Painted 2013. SOLD

This is a painting inspired by walking around Openshaw in Manchester where rows of streets of terraced houses were boarded up ready for demolition, yet amongst them was the occasional occupied house, the last traces of a once thriving community. The whole area was full of ghosts, symbolised by the doll in the painting. Since then it has been bulldozed and cleared and replaced with vast tracts of open wasteland and occasional rows of ugly new houses that look like the architect was inspired by the Maginot Line. An englishman's home is his bunker to hide from the surrounding social decay and horrors of 21st century life. Personally, I would have refurbished a lot of the old stock, making two houses into one or three into two, adding gardens at the back creating urban cottages that already have a 100 year old historical patina of unique Mancunian character and age. But then why ask us Mancunians, we only live here.

Terraced Houses in Manchester No. 2 Sml

 

 

Terraced Houses No. 2 (Streets in Manchester) (50x70cm Acrylic on board.) Painted 2012.FOR SALE. Contact for details. 

A second version of the terraced house theme painting from imagination but based on many streets found all over the city. This time with some trees included which makes it even less correspondent to the reality/realism than giving all the figures the fantastically proportioned heads and making them ironically niave.
