I call these images 'unstill lives'. Drawing people in movement, on a musical wave-length. They are the opposite of 'still life' painting, - (the painting of silent and 'still' bowls of fruit and flowers)... Compositions of dancers and venues made ‘live’ on location in jazz, soul and funk clubs in London, Uk and Beyond. 1990-2020. Fuelled by participation and observation. The images catch or court the spirit and atmosphere of the music and dance of each specific event.
Drawn Live Onsite at Dukes Bar, Houndsditch at The Shiftless Shuffle Jazz-Dance session. 2014. Pastel on Canson Paper 55cm x 75 cm
