Well, it is.....!   Not the conventional way of selling things I guess, but I always find truth and honesty to be far more beautiful than a candy coated lie.

Erect Match Standing in Blu-tack


Erect Match Standing in Blu-tack
Oil on cotton on MDF
62x69mm

In a way this is a tribute to New Plymouth and our famous Wind Wand sculpture by reknowned international kinetic artist Len Lye.

It's also a homage to blu-tack.  I have recently been considering using blu-tack to "paint" with, however a cursory Google search reveals that like everything else I think of, it has already been done. This is one of the most thought provoking and stimulating sites on contemporary art I have viewed in recent years:   Worsley Institute of Blu-Tack Art

Match of the Day - Sunday


Sunday's Matches
Acrylic on cotton on MDF
60x97mm


The last of the Match of the Day series.  This may be the best one of the lot.  I was pleased with how it turned out anyway.  The first two "sunday" matches I tryed didn't work. I burned the match right down to a frizzle, but it didn't feel right (and it burnt my fingers). I needed a good straight vertical at the right hand side of the composition and the live match seemed to fit the job perfectly.  It constantly surprises me that the formal demands of a painting can seem to reflect a certain universal truth about Life.

Match of the Day - Friday

Friday's Matches
Acrylic on cotton on MDF
60x97mm

The crossed match creating a tally complicated things and I had to spend a bit more time and effort on this one.


I believe NZTradeMe only allows New Zealand bidders so if there is anyone internationally who wishes to bid let me know.

Wednesday's match proved to be a bit of a fizzler...  The sun came out though. 
One day however, that too will burn out.
