Brett Amory, Waiting

Below is a collection of images that I recently received from artist Brett Amory, all featuring his most recent ‘enlarged’ waiting series. At the end of June Brett had is first solo show in LA and whilst there he was given the opportunity to paint a life size figure directly onto the gallery wall. Enjoying the scale changed and the manner in which it had affected his characters Brett Embarked on a completely new vein of Larger than life figures, painted on to rough cuts of butcher paper.

Being heavily influenced by street culture this recent development couldn’t be bettered tailored to Brett’s stream of thought. Following a private viewing of the paintings at Heist Gallery, Brett took to the streets placing his ‘waiting’ characters back into the very environments from which he had extracted them years previously. The work now sits in the very locations where it was born, reengaging with those who have inspired an ever-expanding body of work.

If once they were waiting now perhaps they have become engrained, that is at least for a moment until the elements reclaim the paintings leaving only a faint trace of what was formerly there.

Edu Hawkins Music Photography

Just a couple of months ago whilst enjoying a fantastic week off at New Orleans annual Jazz Feast, I had the pleasure of bumping into Edu Hawkins, an old friend and photographer. Edu though inevitably enjoying all that the festival had to offer was in fact there photographing for the Independent Newspaper, London.

The festival if you haven't had the opportunity to experience it is second to none, a cultural extravaganza. Boasting some of the worlds most beloved musicians and so much great food that you will undoubtedly leave a few pounds heavier!

When looking through Edu's photographs I was taken by his fantastic ability to capture not just a moment but the atmosphere present within an environment. In fact whilst Edu was stood a the feet of the King of Blues him self (BB King, image seen above), I watched their interaction, with slight jealousy, from the tips of my toes at the back of a very crowded blues tent.

Since returning Edu has been featured in BBC oxfords 'People and Places' where a collection of his images from the festival plus a selection of others, are being displayed. Images include such iconic musicians as Jarvis Cocker, Jack White and BB King. BBC Oxford - Ed Hawkins
