New work : theatre and peepshow boxes

It's all gone quiet because it's hard to look and talk at the same time.

Once I finished the Cook Inlet panorama I wanted to have it small with new Changeling engravings and specially designed boxes to keep them in. I wanted to get away from glass and frames. Do pictures really have to stand to attention in polite rows behind glass ?

Developing new work is just like all the other best things in life - scary and exciting at the same time.  Like the rest of the Changelings series these begin in an imagined place, part opera, theatre, fairground and circus. How could I forget the trips to the Kursaal in Southend when I was a kid ? Check out this very wonderful Surreal Southend site if you want to know why. That's enough talking - here's some of the maquettes  : 

Progress (if any) will be reported as soon as. Finally here's a link to a wonderful site devoted to Coney Island   which is sadly about to be torn down. I'm planning a trip there to make a Coney Island sketchbook.
