The only thing constant :
( word to Octavia Butler )

Is change. it must be embraced and worked with like clay in the potters hands.
He who can turn Mud into a jar has understood a fundamental law of nature.
Enjoy thanksgiving

Another river to cross

Hello my Blog,

Sad news, you wont be seeing me for a while. Seems that some enterprising sentient beingshave took it upon themselves to break into my mother's car, taking what they could including my laptop.

 I am currently raising funds to get this radical piece of firepower :
ASUS G74SX-XA1 Republic of Gamers 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop

The plastic-mallet blog will be acquiring this beast of a machine as an act of aggression against all those who attempt to shut us down.  In the following months prepare some radical overhauls with this blog. 
I will update you periodically on how the raising funds is going. 

Till then

The Movement x Downtown

The grand master sage at work,

Hello Blog,

Whats good with the world. Been a while but daddy had to make the mula and save the world. That said I had another exhibition and also a world class education on managing an exhibition. I tell ya the administration job and dealing with a job at the s
ame time was real taxing. But I learned a valuable lesson on in extreme time management or as Earle nightingale would say .. activities management as no one can really manage
time, time is.

In weird way some of Veerle's Class on curating started to make sense especially about the art world being an interconnected macrocosim of artist, curator patron, collector, sponsors
..ect. I say this because it the show was not financed by any sponsors, was not curated by any well known person. From the ground up it was nurtured by three individuals two artist and an art teacher/Gallery owner who provided the space in Downtown, Kingston. While not totally a cohesive body (I had a j.o.b ) It took flight.

The biggest shout out for Manifesto Jamaica for getting on board with us and assiting with nuturing this exhibition.

Andwele and Gallery owner, Rozi Chung opening the show

So.....we had decent turn out :)

Tuesdays and Saturdays..I make progress

Hey.... another kiddy pic and a bit of process to it (well sorta kinda) ...

The portraits of the kids faces seems to continuing .. I am just allowing the work to flesh it self out. I dont have a cohesive idea about the work or what form it will take..
currently experimenting with new finishes and varnishes.. would be nice t get some thing like liquid plastic that dries hard and transparent raw acrylic is nice for fixing stuff but i needs a polymer or some thing.I am going towards a combination of different surfaces, textures and playing with shinny versus matte. varnish seems ok so far but turn brown after a while which is good but i takes too long to get that the slick semi brown transparency.
I try to work that out by the next post and hope fully by then will incorporate more media. (progressing tentatively aren't I:D )

Welcome to year before 2012

Welcome to the year before 2012. That's right hold on to your knickers kids cause this will be quite a year. The quality of the year depends upon you and how you deal with life and it's challenges. The best way is to go forth in faith and much backbone. A lot of people get stuck doing same thing every year and they usually get miserable because life has not "granted" them a lucky break ...tuff titty. Pursue your passion, get paid and make your life the way you want it.

BUT enough with the philo-banter ..here is ART
