dready art variations on the wall




                     dready art 'us in dreams' - 36x48" version - limited edition HD archival pigment print

i've fallen in like with this since I drew it ... serious like ... I like it more than pam does it turns out.

and I wanted to put it on the wall where something else had been and was now not any more but it was the wrong shape and size ...

so that's the point, eh, I adjusted it for me and I can adjust something for you ... sometimes it takes a little work, sometimes it s easy ...

dready flying high




                   the dready cayman panorama - things that exist only in my fading memory in Owen Roberts international Airport, cayman islands

The new airport is having its grand opening and they had a massive space to decorate for the event and i and the national gallery happened to have a massive dready that could fit in the space ... fortune smiles on the brave, eh ...



              Mcalpine's crew installing the art, making sure all the fastners line up

it was almost like it was made for the space ...

Harvey, an acquaintance of mine said "it reminds me of what they say about an Alex Katz painting; you could spot one falling out of a plane at 10,000 feet" ... and that's cool because it's true; cause last night 200 yards away at the back of the long term parking you could see the art, clear and bright and funky and you could have guessed it was a dready ...

I know, 'cause I went and looked!

dready ... it's not over till the fat lady sings



                    photo by Piers Harvey of dready flip flops at Jamaica Inn

i've heard it said that the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios has the best patio for breakfast in the whole country ... this pair of dready flip flops came to see and agree ...

the dready flip flops have a life of their own ...

anything is possible ...

Inn, like Flynn ...

dready art ... Jerk



                        dready art 'jerk' - 40x24 - limited edition HD archival pigment print

years ago, in an art class, i was asked to paint a childhood memory and i painted, in oils and pastels, a floating pig in a background of roiling purple and green, dark and ominous ... but the pig was pink and fat ... it was called 'the pig of ancient memory' - and it was just that; literally one of my first memories ...

we had just moved to Kingston from the farm in yallahs, grants pen, which had just become 'Southhaven development' ... I was 2 and 1/2 ish; I don't remember grants pen ... but on what was probably the first day in kingston, a pig, in the bush, a big pig in a big dark bush, at the new house, startled me and that, that is my first memory as a human.

One of my kids has the art hanging on a wall ...

anyhow so the pig of ancient memory when I came to fit it into the dready pantheon kept its pinkness and its round-ness ...

but dready ness is about whimsy, eh, so the pig of ancient memory became 'jerk' - I love jerk pork!

eat mor chik'n ...

Jerk ...

dready art ... what's your 'type'


                         dready 'the yellow scarf' - 30x20" - original commission on paper

i seem to have drawn an inordinate # of jaguars - ftype, etype, and now a c-type or as it's formally know the XK-120-C

the car is famous for winning the 24 hours at Le Mans in 1952 and 3, I think ... anyhow, it was and is (if you can afford the price tag) a beautiful car ... but it doesn't have a roof!

a wife from oxford, england, asked me to draw this for her husband ... and immediately, in minds eye, I saw the long scarf trailing behind ...

there's the bizarre story of the dancer, isadora duncan, who in 1927, got her long scarf, trailing behind her, caught in the rear wheel of her car and it strangled her ...

anyhow, the scene is made up completely but the # is the # of their house, although they don't have such gate posts!



drive on ...
