The Image Is The Servant
I did three figurative acrylic paintings live at the second The Image Is The Servant show: Fearful, in 2015. Each time the show is on, it has a new theme. The timing was perfect for me to do something related to fear, because I had just led two Fright Night events in the months before. I was still able to tap into that mindset. The fifth TIITS event was in 2018 and was called Body Beautiful. Me and artist Kieran Walsh collaborated to make something for that one. Dave Soden, the artist behind The Image Is The Servant shows, asked us to create a big version of himself to project onto. All of those shows involve a live feed of photos which are both taken and shown during the night, the latter being through projections. This time he wanted those projections to go onto a body.
