My partner Simon has a studio in a beautiful old house called Barton Hall, home to many talented artists. Unfortunately, it has been sold and everyone is looking out for new premises. So, I thought I would do a post as a final epitaph to Barton and feature one of the artists every day.
Today I am going to start with my man!
"for in and out, above, about, below, 'tis nothing but a Magic Shadow-show"
(The Rubaiyat of Omar Kayyaim)
The nape of a neck,
The curve of a hip.
The tilt of a breast,
Sweat on the lip.
Tom Waits sings
of love and doom,
And the dust motes dance
in the attic room.
"Naturalist and preserver of animals, birds, reptiles, fish"
Come Back To Haunt Me, Come What May
Property Of A Lady
A Sin You Swallow For The Rest Of Your Life
Just a tantalising glimpse of Simon's work; to view the rest visit his website on the Shadowshow link above.
