I was pleased to be asked to do a wall drawing in the vault artist studios members’ room, formerly the reception area of Tower Street Belfast Met. Pool table, leather sofa and bespoke bar are out of shot.

I’m not certain it is finished, if I work more layers on it I’ll post up the results.

These are¬†finished in the sense that any art work ever is. I could keep working at them adding more layers but judge it’s time to paint over them and start again.

An old piece of work, from around 2010 when Robert Rauschenberg and Mark Bradford were my work’s biggest influences.

Blue Whale are thrilled to have moved in to Vault Artist Studios, alongside almost 90 other creative practitioners. I did a bit of decorating of the outside of our space tonight.

Repetition is an important aspect of my practice, both in drawings and in drumming.

This is the full performance I made on the opening night of The Melody of Dust¬†exhibition. The performance followed a pre-determined ‘recipe’ score that provided a loose structure for what to play during each section. The score allows for improvisation within parameters, ensuring that each performance will be different.

It was kindly filmed by Colm Clarke, who curated the show with Tonya McMullan.

 

I created this wall drawing by working directly onto the wall of Pollen studios in Belfast. The wall surface was rough and full of character, showing evidence of many past exhibitions in the space.

My performance set-up, utilising both electronic and analogue kit components, a loop station and a Marshall Amplifier remained in the space after my performance on the opening night, as sculptural presences.
