This weeks Kick About over on Red’s kingdom is the mystical creations of Hilma Af Klint. I have been yearning to do some traditional art lately, probably due to the fact that, during the Christmas break, my nieces and nephew received some arty presents. Here are some oil pastel drawings similar to some Irish sigils.

The final collection of images for this weeks El Anatsui kick about. For this bunch I popped the artwork into an art placer app for scale and grandiose.
Some more mosaic tapestries created from tinfoil leftover from a steak pie and some coloured markers for this weeks El Anatsui Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom.
This weeks Kick About over on Red’s Kingdom is the incandescent tapestries of El Anatsui. What you are looking at here is the tinfoil leftover from a steak pie, coloured with multicolored markers, photographed, warped and collaged together in photoshop to mimic El Anatsui’s illuminating repurposed sculptures.
The Burning Landscape #3
The third and final cluster of images created in response to JMW Turner’s Vesuvius in Eruption. Leaning into what the photograph was telling this bunch took a different turn to its predecessors.
The Burning Landscape #2
A second assortiment of mixed media photography created for this weeks JMW kick About over on Red’s Kingdom. The goal being to turn my photography of Rural Ireland into ruinous oil paintings.
The Burning Landscape #1
This weeks fortnightly creative prompt over on Red’s Kingdom is the painting – Vesuvius in Eruption by Joseph Mallord William Turner. I was awestruck by the colours of turners painting, especially the light and darkness and contemplated about how the land after Mount Vesuvius would have been teamed in nothing but dark ash and charred to a crisp. The suffocating poison smoke billowing into the air, the wispy remains of trees and how the lava would have cemented over the landscape. I decided to seep through the surplus of landscape photography I have of of rural Ireland and gave a whirl of harmonising in apocalyptic darker hues to turn my photography into the style of ruinous oil paintings. Here is some mixed media images created by digitally painting over my photography of those images of rural Ireland.
This weeks Kick About on Red’s Kingdom is the Père Lachaise Cemetery in Paris. Lately I have been looking to a lot of German expressionism in my own work, the monochromatic shapely designs of the set dressings are unparalleled and always leave me wanting more. With that it mind I wanted to do some black and white eerie angular paintings inspired by German expressionism.
Bokeh Dance #4
The final set of dancing illuminated orbs inspired by the Soundsuits of Nick Cave.
Bokeh Dance #2
A second set of images for this weeks kick about on Red’s Kingdom inspired by the Soundsuits of Nick Cave. This film and the coloured dancing orbs comprised of nothing more then some sequins thrown into a large wok and at times shook about for a bit of moment, It’s always enjoyable figuring out what you can get away in the most analogue way possible.
