My Body Is My Queen

dav

My Body Is My Queen (work in progress) – oil on canvas.

She speaks when I don’t listen

She sees me when I’m lost

She’s not always forgiving

Because she pays the cost

I only know I love her

Cause she’s my only one

I’m sorry for the damage

That cannot be undone

She tells me everything

That I need to know

If I don’t listen good

In sickness it will show

There’s nothing in between

My body never lies to me

My body is my queen

My ruler, my guide, everything

My body is my queen

My everything.

Out Of The Darkness

oil & egg tempera on linen

I recently came across some photos of old paintings and i totally fell in love with them. At this time i was really focused on merged body parts with a more grotesque feel. I love it! I remember being really focused on this style of work but galleries in the uk didn’t seem to be interested. In fact, i remember one gallery saying they would be happy to show my work, as long as i ‘toned it down a bit’. Too freaky! Honestly, i loved doing more disturbing paintings. They were more directly linked to how i was feeling at the time. Putting these feelings into pictures was amazingly fulfilling.

It’s great to be back painting again! I’m starting to feel like a normal human being again after quitting my job! Well, almost normal. Here’s ‘Rainbow Eye’
