One of dad's mates said we're the most unheathy nation after the US, and bring loads of problems on ourselves because of this.

Still, if they eat that unhealthily in Routemaster's neck of the woods primarily - parmos are a Teesside thing most of all, I think? - there are upsides to that. :devil:

They are now charging 18.50 Euros for entry to the Stedlidjk Museum in Amsterdam. :grrr:

I was ejected from there a few years ago for 'altering'' a sign, after interrogation by some security guards and the Curator, and it was free entry then.

It involved a David Bailey photograph. :huh:

Apologies for interwupting your chinwags. Just thought I'd let you know what's going on at Twee Works Scarbowough.

Detail of a new one I've been working on for a while and it's been really difficult as it's a commission, meaning I've had to tie it to something somebody else wants which is not so easy for me. Snakes & Ladders, in fact. I'm sure he'll accept it because it's just a snakes and ladders board and the mug's bunging me a grand for it. Talk about walking on thin ice which is great if you can pull it off. I'm there now.

The whole thing measures 137x137cm.

Banksy claims Nottingham hula-hooping girl artwork

Most artists would have claimed the vandalised bike was their artwork these days. :huh:

The snakes head has been the most difficult part of this Snakes & Ladders commission so you know what, I'm not going to fucking bother painting it. Some mug will cough up a grand for it anyway. :)

Eleanor Fartlett isn't really interested in a text on her paintings, but I've written this today and run it by her and she's ok with it. Her show at Twee Works opens Friday 11 December. There will be drinks between 6-8pm that night but it will no doubt be deserted with probably just me there but I’ll be opening my doors after that between Thursday and Friday 12-1pm until 18 December.

Twee Works // Eleanor Fartlett

She uses heavy, industrial materials: tar and metal paint, chosen for their workman-like qualities. She also uses wax. These materials are nicked from a builder's yard at the bottom of her street. "Materials should possess the power to persuade without recourse to explanation." she explained.

Painting as object, negating the idea of actually painting anything, is the unsettling terrain Fartlett leaves us in. The silly old lezzer.


Detail of a tar work measuring 225x110cm.

North Yorks Art School painting and drawing classes reopen the week following Eleanor Fartlett's preview which takes place on Friday 11 December. Drinks 6–8pm.

This painting is by a young student called Georgious. It is her first ever painting in oil after a Robert Pukes I asked her to copy, and she did exceptionally well. It was about getting used to how paint works, looking at tone and colour and getting a feel for how composition works. I think the Pukes painting Georgious copied is after a painting by Thalbus. The frame is computer generated.

In the summer, I use sheets of flypaper. The oeuvre has two basic themes: "Summer Days" and then "Summer Nights." I found it's best to wait 10 days to two weeks before a showing after the work is complete.

It must have been 2 years ago I asked Stephen West to make 9 large works for a big solo exhibition at Twee Works. And he's completed them. I got a glimpse of them today on file... and what a soulful, moving body of work he's created. They're just full of lovely humanity and I'm really looking forward to putting one up him against my walls. They could be a visual counterpart to McCartney's Frog Chorus album which I love listening to. This one is called Falling Out Of Bed Pissed And Buggered. It measures 152x244cm and I think it's paint on paper. Thank you, Stephen West.

...Summer 2021 at Twee Works.

I like the way you're using mustard to colour it in, I could probably offer you a fiver to display it at Twee Works. :)

Eleanor Fartlett at Twee Works. Until 31st January. Re-opens 7 January.

This time the old lezzer has nailed some doors from a ratty old tool cupboard to my one of my walls, and a couple of wooden planks to another.

I don't know how much she knocks this shit out for, but all comments are welcome, even from Erpingham. :)
