Emily is standing with her recycled feathered creation 'Boxed Dove' at the opening of the WORLDS APART Exhibition at the SOLDIERS Rd Gallery launch. My lasting impression from viewing this artwork is anyone is boxed in one way or another either through family, career, or the unexpected twists of kismet "Life happens and sometimes we wish it did not" - a favourite quote of my grandfather William Somerset Maugham - Master Story-Teller. This decidedly odd man was also a butterfly collector mainly for my grandmother Katherine Ruth who was quite evil if her actions were anything to go by but there is no accounting for the affairs of the heart.

Thank you Emily for the invitation and the evening at this launch of the SOLDIERS Rd Gallery was an amazing and unexpected experience of the senses. The crowded gallery reminded me of a scene from 'Breakfast at Tiffanys' when cocktail parties were all the rage in the 1960s. There was a sense of the Retro effect of the highly stained floorboards contrasting against the untouched part of the wooden flooring. The semi-white cube effect of the walls providing the ideal backdrop for the artwork with glimpses of the inky night somewhat damp outside through old metal-framed windows. The music provided just the right vibe so jazz-like, so New Orleans. Lastly, Thank you Daniel, for making me feel welcome and for the record you are gifted if your artwork is any example.

took this photograph at Factory 49 on an impulse because the effect was so quirky and I realise I am not a vampire regardless of the fact I am photosensitive with a skin too white. There are so many odd relatives in my family but I am not going there although I may write about some at a later date because revenge is best served cold. The shadows of the day were drawing in with small reflections of sunlight dancing on the white walls and the grey cement floor.

Shapes inspired by the construct of the electricity meter box. Therefore the abstract concept of 'NO BIG COAL' is arranged to extend the narrative of how costly electricity is to the global environment.
