A leaf left in East London, April 2017

Another of 2017’s #43ArtDrop pieces. This time, following on from all the fun of the seaside and the Art Car Boot Fair back on the opening Saturday of the 2017 Folkestone Triennial, we return to the Harbour, the old High Street, the Art School and the glorious seaside town with another #43ArtDrop piece.  43 small paintings from Sean Worrall left in and around Folkestone, 43 pieces of art carefully placed, never dropped, always carefully placed, paintings hung on walls, out on the street for people to take should they wish to. 43 Paintings, one piece of work in 43 parts, 43 paintings left hanging around the town on Friday September 22nd for hopefully 43 different people to take and to hopefully post selfie style photos of on their social media using the #43ArtDrop hashtag, the hashtag, the finders and the engagement are an important part of these pieces of work (hopefully it will be 43 people and not one person taking all 43 please). There’s a Facebook event page here should you feel the need to follow events there, or tune in to follow things via Instagram

See you at the seaside, that’s a previous #43ArtDrop piece from earlier this year up there, keep those eyes peeled now…

There really is no satisfaction to be found in a day that doesn’t involve some kind of drawing or painting….

Daily Painting 258/365 (15th September,2017) – Fresh growth, new layers, leaves and the ongoing notion of a smaller painting brought to a completed conclusion on every single day of 2017. On day 258, a 258th piece, acrylic, brushwork, marker pen, gloss varnish on a found recycled piece of hardboard, 43cm x 43cm

The ongoing notion of a smaller painting brought to a completed conclusion on every single day of 2017. A notion that started on the very first day of January, not a painting started and finished every single day, more a painting brought to a completed conclusion every day. There are several smaller pieces being painted on any given day alongside the bigger paintings that are constantly being worked on

Work in progress, September 2017

 There are always pieces in progress and paintings in need of being brought to a conclusion and there really is no satisfaction to be found in a day that doesn’t involve some kind of drawing or painting….

Leaves, thorns, sometimes they have thorns. New layers, fresh growth, the latest daily paintings…

sw_8canvas_sept2017_4

Leaves, thorns, sometimes they have thorns, new layers, fresh growth, or maybe just a tag evolving, or maybe some pop art or some starz flying? Starz with a “z” and the glam rock of it all? Or the hard rock of it all and the fact that you have to rock six times, pop art, leaf growth and the notion of a small painting brought to a completed conclusion on every single day of 2017 that started back on the first day of January just because it seemed like a good idea to force a painting to conclusion. It does still feel like a decent notion at the start of September….

Some of the recent daily pieces can be found on sale via the Cultivate on-line shop, and yes those are deliberately reasonable prices, I do rather think these things should be kept as reasonable as possible

Starz, old brushes, planks saved from skips and the ongoing notion of a smaller painting brought to a completed conclusion on every day on 2017.  The stiff and lifeless paint brush was encrusted in white painting and thrown in a Hackney skip, who’s going to resist a white blank canvas of a paint brush, or indeed an unwanted plank of weathered woo, a piece of broken wooded pallet. 43 Starz on a plank of wood (you’ve got rock six times), the piece can now be found in the Cultivate on-line shop along with some of the daily paintings that haven’t already been sold or left hanging on the street for people to take

Stars, starz, 43 Starz…
