I’m exhibiting 12 of my latest works at The September Art Exhibition in Wadhurst, East Sussex next week from 4th-14th September. This is one of my favourites from the selection, showing Ian Dury framed with his vinyl single; 'Reasons to be Cheerful, Part 3'. Ian is one of my favourite musicians - he never fails to cheer me up. I identify with the references of this particular song, being from the same generation (remember Wee Willie Harris) - it gets me every time. I love his 'assemblage’ lyrics and the really novel and interesting singles he produced, with clever graphics and quirky ideas. He was and is a great inspiration..
