Sian Superman 07:32"John Superman" had a few good days but Sian is back. However, watch out for JS paintings on the site in the future.
Sian Superman 15:48I was looking at some photographs of CBGBs today, on the web, as there is some sort of Proud Galleries exhibition coming up in London. Half of these people were called 'Johnny' [Thunders, Blitz, Ramone etc] and then there's Patti Smith's 'the boy looked at Johnny'. Well, I thought. New York in the 70s. Interesting.
The anglicised version, of course, is John. And as I have a head cold and am feeling rather peculiar I came round to thinking, hm, John Superman may just be a good name for an artist. So today I am going to refer to myself as John. John Superman, Outsider Artist.
And thus onto the subject of today.
You may have heard the work of a gentleman called Luke Haines, the notorious songwriter, with bands such as The Auteurs, Black Box Recorder, Baader Meinhof and of course, by his own nom de non-plume, Luke Haines. He is known throughout the world as a despot, a soothsayer, a perspicacious visionary. (By the way, I am married to this man.)
And so, as if pushed into a corner by a very large baboon, I have new paintings for sale, inspired by the cover of 'Bad Vibes', Haines’ memoir. The “dark destroyer” is portrayed here in all his brooding glory, with the heavy clouds of doom in the background and a martini in his hand. He glowers with knowing nihilism as the shutter clicks, and paintbrush flicks and a new artwork is borne. Therefore, here is picture 1:
Picture 2 features our fiery fiend as a disembodied head, one filled with menace and sarcasm – a gigantic two fingers [not pictured] to the world. “Bad Vibes” is also its name and such is its game. Here it is:
The paintings are in acrylic paint, on canvas, and measure 16" by 12".
Copies will be limited up to 40. Each one will be slightly different, not intentionally, but rather sensationally. (Outsiders have no truck with things being exactly the same.)
The paintings are £100 each and that includes UK postage & packing. Anywhere else in the world, please email for a postage price. Paypal works best. Click here to email.
