Stuckism : Interviews with Charles Thomson

Facebook Group | Instagram | Reddit | Comments below

In November 2012, I filmed a series of short talks by Charles Thomson on the subject of Stuckism (see below). Thomson co-founded Stuckism with Billy Childish in 1999. Childish left soon after.

Thomson and Childish’s work is included in my current exhibition of Stuckist paintings.

Below: Shortly after the above interviews, in early 2013, I filmed two further interviews with Thomson about his work. Two paintings in particular, the first of which marked a pivotal change in direction. The second painting was a portrait of my then-wife, Shelley Li.

Both these paintings are in my current exhibition of Stuckist art.
