Famous Heart Quotes used in the Show

“The things we truly love stay with us always, locked in our hearts as long as life remains.” Josephine Baker

Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu Chapter One

‘The Dao (Tao) that can be told of is not the absolute Dao,
The names that can be given are not absolute names
The nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth,
The named is the Mother of all things.
Often times, one strips oneself of passion in order to see the secrets of life; often times, one regards life with passion, in order to see its manifest results.
These two (the secret and its manifestations) are (in their nature) the same; they are given different names when they become manifest.
They may both be called Cosmic Mystery and this is the gate[way] to the secret of all life.’
John Lennon said ‘When I cannot sing my heart, I can only speak my mind’

Ancient Chinese proverb
‘If I keep a tree in my heart, then the singing bird will come.’

Kahlil Gibran
‘To understand the heart and mind of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but at what he aspires to.’

Carl Jung
‘Your vision will become clear only when you look into your heart … Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens.’

Lord Byron
‘There is no instinct like that of the heart.’

‘Wheresoever  you go, go with all your heart.’


MA Fine Art Private View

Last nights event was really well attended and had a great atmosphere. I was in charge of the wine and nibbles and managed to get a good bulk buy, thanks to B&M Bargains, Preston. Lots of positive, affirming feedback and lots of lovely friends travelling from afar as London to celebrate my MA Fine Art – Site & archive (Distinction) Yippee!

These are the two of the best photos, as it got darker,  the installation shadows could be seen as I intended with the changing evening light.  I  will put the other photos on Flickr (see button on home page bottom right)

The Fairy Funeral

Last Wednesday, I gave a talk on the connections between the Yardworks and local fairy mythology in Lancashire at the Harris Museum in Preston as part of the ‘Enchanted Worlds’ exhibition that is currently showing. The talk was well received and I lots of positive comments afterwards.  I may post extracts from the talk later, or short extracts on video. In the meantime, here is an edited version of the ten minute shadow performance I created  during the day with Adam Bennett, shadow puppeteering with myself, and Tom Woolsgrove, live music to accompany the talk.
