In the heart – Opposition

In the heart there’s no turning back
No rules or lies to hold me back
In the heart there’s no tomorrow
In the heart only pain and sorrow

In the heart I hear different sounds
Voices I’ve never heard before
In the heart there are strangers rooms
In the heart only pain and sorrow

In the heart there’s no illusion
Stripped clean and left without expression
You face yourself and face your sorrow
In the heart feel pain and sorrow

In the heart – Opposition
Album : Intimacy / 1983

 

Drôle de trajectoire pour ce groupe, qui était voué à un grand avenir avec un mélange explosif de New Wave racée (guitares aériennes, basse profonde et voix très aérienne) et de Reggae blanc, un peu à la manière de Police… Bizarrement ce groupe anglais se taille une légende franco-française comme avant eux, le Velvet. Ils signent des albums excellents et diversifiés jusque là. En 1983, The Opposition sort donc cet album enregistré aux studios Matrix de Londres, qui affirme un peu plus leur style particulier et ouvert à beaucoup d’influences… Il rencontrera un succès notable en France, aucun en Angleterre. Le cocktail est bien sûr dominé par la voix de Mark Long, immédiatement reconnaissable et un jeu de guitare soyeux, fragile. Marcus Bell assoit le son “The Opposition” avec sa basse rampante qui m’a fait chavirer lors d’un concert mémorable à Marseille en 1990… Ralph Hall a un jeu de batterie très travaillé qui est agrémenté de percussions chatoyantes. Bien évidemment des chansons sortent du lot comme “Lifes Blood” qui donne un ton général à l’album bien sombre et mélancolique, “My Room Is White” portée à bouts de bras par une basse délicieusement profonde et dense, “Voice Has Changed” contenant des riffs saignants, une ligne de basse intemporelle et quelques notes de piano appuyant la mélodie parfaite. On pense effectivement un peu à The Cure pour “Aching Arms” et le son de basse monstrueux (slappé). Je me suis longtemps demandé ce qui a manqué à cet album pour lancer définitivement le groupe, tant le son y est juste (production extraordinaire de Kenny Jones). Le manque d’un “hymne” à la U2 ou Simple Minds peut être…

Privilégiant un processus artisanal tel que la couture (fait main), elle transforme des matériaux malléables comme des gants, des chaussettes, tissus d’habillement.. et d’autres vêtements texturés qu’elle revêt et imprégne de résine, qui se solidifient et conservent tous les détails tactiles. Ainsi naît ses sculptures figuratives très expressives.

“Dans mes rêves, des bribes de la vie quotidienne se combinent avec des fragments de la mémoire et cela prend une nouvelle signification, je tente de faire écho à cette notion dans les matériaux que je choisis pour mon travail. J’aime l’idée de choses désuètes, rejetées et marginales qui reviennent et forment de puissantes présences.”

Rachel Ducker Wire Sculpture

Rachel Ducker Wire Sculpture. (UK)
British contemporary artist, Rachel Ducker was originally trained as a jeweller. With an insatiable desire to create she turned her attention to sculpting the human form in wire, concentrating on the expressive and emotional dynamics of human nature.

Rachel Ducker Wire Sculptures

Rachel Ducker Wire Sculptures

“With an incredibly visual, active mind Rachel has an insatiable desire to create and make. Well practiced in life drawing and with an appreciation of the human form and the emotional dynamics of human nature, combined with being originally trained as a jeweller, lead her to experiment with wire as a medium for sculpting the human form, capturing something ephemeral, either emotive or active.
Her pieces are untitled due to her belief that everyone sees something different in the sculptures and her lack of suggestion leads them to live that moment she portrays in their own particular way, therefore expanding the piece of work further with every viewer.

The translucency and form of her work allows rather dramatic shadows to be cast and with the right lighting, can show the three dimensional form on a two dimensional level creating an effect resembling a pencil sketch on the wall.

Rachel uses no model and she doesn’t form the shape around anything. The posture is first designed and then the pieces are carefully molded by hand and then gradually added to, wrapping wire, layer by layer. Her satisfaction with the posture can be instantaneous or take days and every angle important right to the tip of the finger and to a millimetre of adjustment until just right. She discovered that the slightest movement in the angle of the hand or fingers, or the tilting of the head changes everything the figure is portraying.

Her sculptures being featureless leaves the posture to say all, expressing the feeling. The hair creating the scene, making all more turbulent, dramatic, adding latent movement and tenacity. She is very focused on people watching and body language and how people express themselves physically and all goes along side her keen interest in psychology.

Her inspiration may come from the human form, but she is also greatly inspired by different materials, found objects and new techniques and is keen to combine mediums, finding it often leading to new ideas, which Rachel is never short of!
The wire work keeps her more than busy, supplying over twenty galleries in the UK alone, various exhibitions and numerous private commissions globally. But Rachel tries to keep her active mind diverse in it’s creativity. She still makes her silver cast jewellery to commission and enjoys experimenting with painting, life drawing monoprints, photography and is keen to try animation with the wire figures, as well as constantly moving on with the sculpture.”

Nicola Hicks – Closed up horse – Life study – 2012 / sculptures

Hicks studied at the Chelsea School of Art from 1978 to 1982 and at the Royal College of Art from 1982 to 1985.

Animals are her primary subject matter, usually sculpted in straw and plaster. This was unusual for an artist in the 80s, by which time abstract sculpture and installation art had become the norms in the art world. Hicks also works on huge sheets of brown paper on which she works up her dynamic charcoal drawings. Many of the sculptures have subsequently been cast in bronze, often with such subtlety that every fragile detail of plaster and straw is reproduced.

Prince Fluffy Kareem help horses – donkeys and camels in Egypt –

Support and follow them.

Ca fait un moment que je suis leur page sur Facebook et ils font un travail formidable, un exemple parmis d’autres – comme pour cette jument arrivée dans un état pitoyable dans leur asso (voir photo ci-dessous).
Elle n’était pas vouée de par son état à être maman… car souffrant de calcification dans ses pattes avant et d’atrophie musculaire du fait d’avoir été gravement émaciée.

Pour la “Fête des Mères” fêtée aujourd’hui dans certains pays, ils ont reposté la video de la naisssance de son poulain ! Une vraie émotion (dont j’ai pompé la video, j’espere qu’ils ne m’en voudont pas ! :)
Je copie-colle de même leur texte ci-dessous (en anglais) de l’époque où ils l’ont accueilli, expliquant la situation.

I hear it’s mother’s day today, so thought it would be fitting to re-share this video of Mama Na3na3 giving birth! For those new to the page: Na3na3 became pregnant by accident after the landlord’s stable workers (who were responsible for cleaning our stables at the time) managed to put her in the menage with a stallion. We had no idea she was pregnant until we suddenly discovered her teats were enlarged. We got the vet to come and do ultrasound, and he told us she was 5 months pregnant. After lots of tears and swearing and consultations with several vets abroad, we were told that no, it’s too late to abort the foal, but also assured that being pregnant and giving birth would not affect Na3na3’s health – she has calcification in the fetlocks in her front legs and muscle atrophy from having been severely emaciated when we bought her. 

When her teats started dripping milk, we realized the vet had been mistaken, and she was actually two months further along than originally assumed. After many days and nights on constant foal watch she gave birth just the night we weren’t intending to stay awake. We were accidentally on the land at night because of a sick foster horse that we were giving IV fluids, and just as we finished up and closed the lights, Na3na3’s water broke. Her foal was called Tayyar (which translates roughly to “someone who flies”), and after he was born I had post-natal depression for weeks. I hadn’t wanted a foal, and I felt overwhelmed with guilt and responsibility for a new life. I didn’t touch him and didn’t cuddle him. However, he grew on me slowly by being the kindest and gentlest foal ever. All the others are really cheeky, but Tayyar is the perfect gentleman and only wants to be brushed or cuddled. Before he was born, people were telling me Na3na3 would be happy to be a mum, and I thought “what a load of sentimental crap – that’s just instincts”. But I have to say, I really do believe she is enjoying motherhood. She is a people’s horse, and doesn’t like any other horses so she was always a bit lonely. She loves all the extra attention that comes with having a foal, loves to be with her son, and she has even taken on our two rescue foals Weeble and Blossom – they are the only ones allowed to eat with her. She looks like she has triplets when they are all going around in a herd  So happy, happy Mother’s Day to all of you two-legged and four-legged mothers!

“HOW CAN I HELP?”

Every day we receive messages from people all over the world asking “How can I help?” , for which we are endlessly grateful. Our basic monthly expenses for wages for Sherif and the stableworkers, stable rent, feed and medications are currently approximately $2500, this is in addition to the new land rent of $1500 a month and the medication for the horses that attend the PFK clinics. We rely mostly on donations and would never be able to do what we do without our amazing supporters.

Contributions can be sent via Paypal to princefluffykareem@hotmail.co.uk (Preferred currency is GBP but this PayPal account will accept all currencies)

We get many messages from followers who would like to send us used tack. Due to the very unreliable Egyptian postal system as well as customs wanting taxes and bribes, it is not possible to post items directly to us in Egypt. To ensure delivery all items must be couriered in by someone visiting Cairo, usually Marte from Norway or Emma from England. Due to limited luggage allowance we prioritise wound treatment products, wormers, fluffy nosebands and girth covers. If you would like to send something, please send us a message to get the address.

Other things you can do to help:

– Hold a fundraiser for Team Kareem! Many of our supporters have held cake stalls, auctioned off used tack or their own drawings and paintings, and one eager fluffeteer even held a Breakfast Barbeque Fundraiser in his office!

Thank you to everyone for joining, for reading, for commenting, for sharing the page, for fundraising, for donating, we could never have done this without you!

Anna Gillespie - Sculptures

Anna Gillespie – Sculptures

The sculpture shows the time of gathering but also a gathering up of transience, as if by embracing time you might stop its perpetual motion. And in bronze it is caught forever.
In such work the distinction between the human and the natural world is blurred, reminding me of Ovid’s ‘Metamorphoses,’ in which people are transformed into trees, birds, and flowers. In all the tales the transformation is an act of mercy – so the self-obsessed, lovelorn youth Narcissus becomes a flower instead of suffering death, and the devoted old couple Baucis and Philemon are changed into trees at the same time. There is real compassion in Gillespie’s work too, and she would understand that process of becoming, for in those sculptures which do not make use of the twigs and seeds which became a characteristic so beloved of her admirers, there is still a struggle to break free of what was and become something else. So a white figure is imprisoned within a stone wall, and people wrapped in duct or masking tape are infused with extraordinary energy and given the gift of flight.
This is the work of an artist at the height of her powers, who is involved in an endless process of change herself – a serious, passionate quest for synthesis.
