Couple Shower, Dressed in Light – Original (120cm x 100cm)

Couple Shower, Dressed in Light

Couple Shower, Dressed in Light is a large acrylic, painted on a 120cm by 100cm box canvas during 2014. At first I thought the figures where androgynous but it soon became apparent that they were male. The scythe in the sky? Well I wanted it set during a full moon, but as soon as I started to paint it in; there looking back at me was a scythe!
I don’t see it as foreboding. If anything I see as saying, ‘look I am here in the background, so make every moment count.’

A cavalcade of colour. This shower scene, cave painting, colorizes the grotto of rocks and water surrounding our two bathers. This shower scene, cave painting, colorizes the grotto of rocks and water surrounding our two bathers.

Patricia Lee “Patti” Smith (born December 30, 1946) is an American singer-songwriter, poet and visual artist who became a highly influential component of the New York City punk rock movement with her 1975 debut album Horses.

Called the “punk poet laureate”, Smith fused rock and poetry in her work. Smith’s most widely known song is “Because the Night”, which was co-written with Bruce Springsteen. The song reached number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1978. In 2005, Patti Smith was named a Commander of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture, and in 2007, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. On November 17, 2010, she won the National Book Award for her memoir Just Kids. The book fulfilled a promise she had made to her former long-time roommate and partner, Robert Mapplethorpe. In Rolling Stone magazine’s list of 100 Greatest Artists published in December 2010, she was in 47th place. She is also a recipient of the 2011 Polar Music Prize.

Professor John Nash and Company

John Forbes Nash (1928 – 2015)

The following text is from Wikipedia.

John Forbes Nash. (June 13, 1928 – May 23, 2015) was an American mathematician with fundamental contributions in game theory, differential geometry, and partial differential equations. Nash’s work has provided insight into the factors that govern chance and decision making inside complex systems found in daily life.

His theories are used in economics, computing, evolutionary biology, artificial intelligence, accounting, computer science, games of skill, politics and military theory. Serving as a Senior Research Mathematician at Princeton University during the latter part of his life, he shared the 1994 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences with game theorists Reinhard Selten and John Harsanyi. In 2015, he was awarded the Abel Prize for his work on nonlinear partial differential equations.

In 1959, John Nash began showing clear signs of mental illness, and spent several years at psychiatric hospitals being treated for paranoid schizophrenia. After 1970, his condition slowly improved, allowing him to return to academic work by the mid-1980s. His struggles with his illness and his recovery became the basis for Sylvia Nasar’s biography, A Beautiful Mind, as well as a film of the same name.

Ninian Central
Ninian Central – Glowing at Twilight

The Ninian Central Platform is located in the North Sea. It was built in Loch Kishorn, Scotland in 1978. At a colossal 600,000 tonnes the platform was the world’s largest man-made movable object before being towed to its current position and fixed to the sea floor.

It is a circular concrete gravity structure, 140 m in diameter at its base, with seven concentric walls of stepped heights intersected by radial walls at 45-degree angles. A 14 m wide central shaft is surrounded by a breakwater wall (“Jarlin Wall”) 45 m in diameter and 1.6 m thick pierced with 15m diameter holes. Between these two walls drill slots are arranged for drilling up to 42 wells.

Originally, Ninian Central was operated by Chevron Petroleum (UK), a division of Chevron, it is currently operated by CNR International.

In this rendition the platform is bathed in orange and yellow light. It represents the rig seen at twilight on a calm summers evening.

Dinosaurs are available at all scales, bespoke to your room.

Parasaurolophus meaning “near crested lizard” in reference to Saurolophus, is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur that lived in what is now North America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 76.5–73 million years ago. It was a herbivore that walked both as a biped and a quadruped. Three species are recognized: P. walkeri (the type species), P. tubicen, and the short-crested P. cyrtocristatus. Remains are known from Alberta (Canada), and New Mexico and Utah (USA). The genus was first described in 1922 by William Parks from a skull and partial skeleton found in Alberta.

Parasaurolophus was a hadrosaurid, part of a diverse family of Cretaceous dinosaurs known for their range of bizarre head adornments. This genus is known for its large, elaborate cranial crest, which at its largest forms a long curved tube projecting upwards and back from the skull. Charonosaurus from China, which may have been its closest relative, had a similar skull and potentially a similar crest. Visual recognition of both species and sex, acoustic resonance, and thermoregulation have been proposed as functional explanations for the crest. It is one of the rarer hadrosaurids, known from only a handful of good specimens.
