Featured Painting

 

As part of my 2015 exhibition, ‘Performance’, I covered a performance of Jonzi D’s Lyrikal Fearta at The Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal. I was given a space to work from at the back of the theatre for various events. Lyrikal Fearta was the first of the theatre productions in that exhibition to bear fruit and there was/is still a lot more I’d like to do with it.

The first half of the performance was taken up with a piece entitled The Letter on which ‘Here’s the Thing’, another painting from that set, is based.

This particular painting depicts a moment in the second half of the show, a collaborative piece with Ivan Blackstock called Broken Lineage which explores the conflicts between Old Skool and New Skool in hip-hop.
