Larina, familiarizing herself with a pile of art history.
 Irrashaimasse (welcome)
 Cafe Jiro
Street Scene

Larina found my little Jiro Osuga book in the book shelf. Great to have another look at his world.

'Gentle cleanser' oil on linen
The title came to me in the shower while I was scrubbing the rash on my face with QV wash, but this piece is more about prayer and peace, although the jacket is a Thai boxing jacket with this great embroidered lion and Thai writing on it. So you may ask yourself why a Japanese looking cowboy is praying in a Thai boxing gown... let me tell ya it happens every night down in Thonglor.

Wild new 'God paintings' by Dana Schutz showing in Berlin at the moment. link here

'Pattaya pad'
collage, 2013
I was very surprised I saw the inspiration for this collage after I'd actually made the work with this kind of bloke in mind.

Modern lizard I and II
oil on linen

A view from above of a modern lizard just before it scurry's back in amongst the lush plant world. Warm on the pavement but safe in the plants, the modern lizard has to decide.
'Eliza has a new pram'
pencil and water colour, 2013

This is about the day Eliza hit the pavement with her new pusher. It absolutely dwarfed Larina's Chicco liteway stroller.
