Proud to announce that Saatchi Art featured me as Artist of the Day. On my profile you’ll find another 49 drawings, photographs, collages and paintings for sale as original artworks and prints.
On top of a black and white photo of Jane Morris I superimposed a colour portrait of me, taken by Liselotte Fleur for the editorial about my work in Lone Wolf magazine.
Commemorating Jane Morris’ birthday as she was born on 19 October 1839, I posted this collage on my (recently started) Instagram and Facebook accounts. Doublechecking the date I suddenly realised there was another photograph of Jane Morris from the same series.
I might have always overlooked the image on the left as I was so smitten by the image in which Jane sits upright, full of self confience. Don’t you agree how this slight tilt of the head so drastically influences the way we perceive Jane?
A few weeks ago I stumbled upon another photograph of Jane I never saw before (left), even though Stephanie Graham Piña featured it on her website Lizzie Siddal several years ago! The image on the right is featured in the ‘Album of Portraits of Mrs. William Morris (Jane Burden) Posed by Rossetti, 1865’. The Album is in the Victoria & Albert Museum and I highly recommend making an appointment to view the famous photographs of Jane Morris in person!
By subtly pervading both my art and my subconscious, Jane Morris has built herself a Memory Palace. Gradually, a very personal relationship with her developed, through a series of remarkable dreams.
A limited edition CD was made especially for the private view of my exhibition ‘A Memory Palace of Her Own’ at the William Morris Gallery in 2014. I greatly enjoyed making this off-the-cuff recording with composer Jolle Roelofs, who is also responsible for the editing of the sound fragments and the improvisations on ukulele and piano.
In this fragment I will be meeting Jane and William Morris. There are no more limited edition CD’s for sale at the William Morris Gallery. If you are interested in a copy just let me know and I can send you one.
