Struck Down!

I have returned from Bonny Scotland but my return to the Big Apple has seen me struck down with a horrible dose of what can only be assumed Swine Flu..On the upside, now is probably a great time to purchase a McArthur as I may not be around for much longer, and my stock could be rising to giddy heights in value. I'm feeling pretty horrendous. Hopefully I'll be back in the studio before long..

Exhibition - Scotland

Some recent work produced in New York is being exhibited in a group figurative exhibition opening this evening in Scotlandart Gallery in Edinburgh, St. Stephens Street, Stockbridge. I will be in attendance and it would be great to see anyone who would like to come along.

Warm Blue

I have also inadvertently dyed most of my underwear a strange blue/purple which also could be adding to my blue period - just a reminder to self really.. Infulences come in all directions - colour run.....anyone?

Blue Period

You can't keep an old girl down.. Incredibly, I seem to be having an unusual reaction to being back in my tierra materna and have entered a new blue phase. I have now arrived in the Capital and having spent the day swatting artistic ideas about with my creative accomplice Dylan Lisle over a bellini or two, I have embarked on a new slightly more abstract approach. Possibly a reaction to the lochside experience, possibly a result of my new nationalistic fervour or possibly simply the booze... Any which way, it's a break from the old routine.

I'm in Scotland for a short break lochside. I probably won't be posting anything while i'm here, although as you can see I find it difficult to put the paintbrush down... over and out.

New Muse

I spent yesterday evening getting some new material on a rooftop in Brooklyn where I did a most productive photoshoot with my new muse Mr. Przemek Godycki. He is an avid extreme kite surfer and despite his strange name, he can jump very well and very high, perfect for the new wave of high energy McArthurs.

I am off to the UK today for a short break and will be exhibiting new work from New York in a show in Scotlandart Gallery in Edinburgh opening on 24th September and also in a show at Blackheath Gallery in London opening 19th September.

New Studio (Not so) Grand Street, Brooklyn

My fabulous new studio space on Not So Grand Street in Brooklyn. I've just moved in - my 4th work space this year - and best so far. It's got an intriguing sign on the outside - Hellbent I'll - I need to add Break America at some stage..It has an impressive and mysterious pair of wrought iron doors that don't go anywhere, it's pristine white (for now) and it's giving me good vibes which is just as well since I've got to make a solo show in 3 months...

The holiday's over, Let the games begin...
