Sunrise, Sandgate, Kent. 15 January 2016. You don’t need to get up too early to see the sunrise at this time of year. There were people driving to work when I was painting this, which I felt quite comforting. Really cold though at this hour - my hands were quite numb.
8 February 2016. Maidstone, Kent. We had a lot of dull and wet weather here as you’d expect in mid winter, so it was a relief to actually see the sun - well it was for a short while anyway. I love the way the bridge here is slightly obscured by the tree hanging down and also the lovely street lamp. It reminds me a bit of Paris, although not so grand of course. Even though this is the centre of Maidstone, it was actually quiet here - hardly anyone passing by. It was just seriously cold that’s all.
Llyn Foulkes é sanguinolento e impiedoso. Numa reação violenta e contestatória aos desvarios do mundo moderno, ele mutila suas figuras. Artista da cena Pop de Los Angeles dos anos 60, Foulkes mistura imagens de revistas e personagens de desenhos animados, normalmente da Disney, que ele tanto abomina. À maneira de Francis Bacon, Foulkes reage ferozmente sobre as colagens, decepando corpos e sangrando cabeças. Llyn Foulkes: Bloody Heads apresenta alguns trabalhos dessa série, que o artista desenvolve há mais de dez anos. Na Kent Fine Art, até 17 de dezembro.
