'Iron Serenity'

"Iron Serenity". June 2007. (newspaper, glossy paper and black/white spray paint on canvas)

Here's a photograph of a recently finished collage that I made as a wedding gift for old friends (Clash fans - as am I).

Designed partly with an image in mind of those faded old gig flyers and notices that you still see pasted on wallspaces in towns and cities around the country.

I am also a sucker for collecting media/news about anything I'm interested in (I have a ton of Cure news clippings and VHS tapes that's nearly two decades old, for instance), and sometimes looking back on these tattered totems, thinking sagely about the past and of who survived it all. And who didn't.
