  • A NEW SHOW OF MINE IN WOLVERHAMPTON UK

    27 juli 2011

    Hi there,

     

    Having worked hard for 2 months on a new body of work of which I only have put on 2 on my site, I have found some original premises to show them...in Wolverhampton, at the Volte Galleries which was a former Railway station of the Victorian era. 

    For 2 years curator and arts graduate from the Wolverhampton Arts College, Mrs. Antoinette, rented that beautiful building and now she will put an end to end as she will be moving to Berlin soon.

    It starts this Friday 29th at 6 pm at the lower level station (behind the New Station) and will be on for 3 days only. I have works ther from 1995 up to 2011. Please do come over if you are in the area. Thanks!

    Yours

    Alann

  • VISITING MY DAD'S LEGACY

    25 mei 2011

    My dad passed away on 25 November last year, while I was teaching in Phnom Penh. The series on the dead, spirits, and reincarnations, are proving to be cathartic.

    Scetches were made by me in a hotel room in PP around that period when also 350 people died on th Koh Pich  (Diamond Bridge) during the Boat Races festival, known as Pchum Ben. Now they are being transferred one by one onto canvas.

    My relationship with my dad has been very shaky at times when I needed most of mental support. We said goodbye last year at the nursing home and on the phone later 2 weeks before he died.

    Mystics don't use the word dying, thye say he reincarnated. So do the Buddhists. Various congregations of monks went and sat by the river to pray for the many missing people, bodies, and help their souls, who they believed needed the right and timely transition.

    I hope my dad's transition was OK too, and that he may like the painting I made. in which I have used parts of his imagery....her in this case a winter landscape.

    I was the first pink branch of the family and he had a hard time accepting it.

  • BOYS, MEN GET OVER IT!!!

    Everytime I read comments denigrating a man’s male anatomy I cringe. Those comments show of what harm the feminist movemement has done to the male self image. While women can go for boobjobs and show off a nice cleavage men are denied to show off what their nature is. We teach our boys to hide anything that is masculine a body and be ashamed of it. The beauty of males is hidden in lousy baggy trousers which makes the male even more unattractive. The women have taken shorts away from us men and boys, the tights of the 16th century too. It’s time that men take back what was theirs, but for that too happen they need to regain their self value and that of their own bodies. Once unisex fashion was invented, women could wear trousers and shorts and they took it away from us, to the point where men wearing shorts as they used in the 70s are now called gay!!!!

     

    Boys get over it. Read the book written by Germaine Greer “The Boy”, and get back to the roots of Greek eros, where men and boys were allowed and proud to show off male anatomy. The feminists movement are guilty of creating the low self image a boy has of himself and his male anatomy showing off in speedos, etc. The USA prudes who invented the boxers to hide what we have. What’s wrong with showing off what we have? What’s wrong with showing off the male beauty a boy has. The only thing we see now from USA which has contaminated the rest of the world is baggy trousers, sagging trousers showing off a brand of undies, baggy hoodies (thank you Bronx Hip hop), making us hideous, mistaking for male machoness. Women give us back our shorts and tights and get lost. Long live the codpiece!!!

     

    Just compare and tell me what is most esthetic and pleasing to the eye.
