Description

The original artwork of ‘Jimmy’ was created in 2012.  This original  was sold within a week of going on sale at Art in the Heart’s shop in Peterborough.  Heavily textured, it  consists of stamps, water soluble wax pastels, acrylic paint and pencil.   The giclee prints replicate the original extremely well and have a textured quality about them in keeping with the original.

Lots of people ask why I have done so much work about the Mod movement, and my answer is not that straight forward.  As a teenager in the 80s I became very obsessed with all things Mod and Quadrophenia was the first ‘adult’ film I ever saw.    The image of ‘Jimmy’ is my interpretation of The Who’s Quadrophenia Album sleeve which has become increasingly  iconic over the years.   For some reason, this film has hit a nerve with millions of people all over the world and remains one of the most significant British  films to date.

The Mod movement has transcended itself into a strange British historical quirk which now thanks to the internet has been adopted by teenagers all over the world.  I am a regular attendee of the Brighton Mod Weekender held every August Bank Holiday weekend and love the whole spectacle. The alleyway in which Jimmy is standing, is now a tourist destination in Brighton and probably one of the most regularly painted walls of all time.  Whoever owns it now certainly is not a fan of graffiti.

Hotel Pelirocco in Brighton loved my ‘Jimmy’ print so much they have two of them on display (see image).  One is perched rather aptly at the entrance of their ‘Mod’ themed room.

  • Heartwork is a venture I set up in 2011 after giving up teaching Art to concentrate on my personal creative endeavours. It wasn’t until I was 42 years old, I was finally diagnosed with ADD (the inattentive variant of ADHD) and that helped explain my rather complicated C.V. I work intuitively from the conception of the idea through to completion of the final piece. My art is a good insight into a hyperactive mind, and how the subconscious and conscious constantly battle for attention producing layers of thoughts, ideas and emotions. Subject matter flits about reflecting my tangled thoughts, in turn keeping my work curiously difficult to categorise. An emphasis on colour, texture and scale is apparent in all of my work, a long with repeated symbolism that corresponds with my incessant need to express myself visually. To date I have exhibited in a wide variety of venues nationally which reflects the eclectic nature of my work: In 2016 I have had two solo exhibitions at the infamous Hotel Pelirocco, Brighton and the Institute of Psychiatry, London.
