I recently collaborated on a short film with Andrew Telling in conjunction with my upcoming show “Suspended” at The Outsiders Gallery.  Check out some stills above and I hope you enjoy the film. Lucinda Chua has composed a beautiful soundtrack to accompany the imagery which you can stream here Also below are some behind the scenes snaps of the day of filming, we had 20ft of scaffolding, a trampoline and lots of smoke. Big thanks to The Truman Brewery and everyone involved. If you are interested in reading a bit more about the process Creative Review have posted a little interview with Andrew and I about the project here and the film featured on Its Nice That yesterday too.






Zebras and Airplanes – Alicia Keys

February 15, 2014


The very lovely Alicia Keys yesterday released her song “Zebras and Airplanes” as a Valentines gift to her fans, she wrote it after seeing this painting of mine 5 years ago – time flies! The painting is called Passage and was part of a two person show I did with Conor Harrington in Los Angeles at the Kinsey Des Forges Gallery . Listen to the song and read Alicia’s thoughts on the painting below



“I remember it like yesterday. I saw this gorgeous painting by Chloe Early, one of my favorite artists. It was a woman in a pool with her head back, as if in deep comfort and bliss. Behind her the colors of the painting turned from galloping zebras to flying airplanes. I had never been overcome to write a song after seeing a painting before, but this one sent me to another place.I felt it! The power, the freedom, the strength to gallop and fly. And I knew right at that moment I would write a song called ‘Zebras and Airplanes’ to describe that kind of love. The whole of you— body and soul— can gallop and fly!

Since Valentine’s Day is here, let us know that every day is the day to love and cherish those around us—

all those that make life sweet like chocolate and warm as a bubble bath.

But most importantly, don’t forget YOU!

Love on yourself. Pamper yourself. Cherish yourself. Today and forever.

I wish you the kind of love that comes from within and spreads all the way out!

With love,

AK ”
