Mobile Photography & Art Showcase – 8 March 2020

Clive James the prolific Austrialian author, poet and broadcaster died late last year. I’ve always been a fan of his work, he made his name as a television critic, essayist and wit but he started as a poet and just over five years ago he was diagnosed with leukaemia, emphysema and kidney failure – he described it as ‘the lot’ and he ended as a poet.

There’s a particular story I remember reading about James, it goes like this…

One time he was going through a creative dry spell. He had written a play for the London stage and it bombed spectacularly. Not only did it ruin his family financially but it also cost him some dear friends. He fell into the deepest depression and shame. When the play closed, all he could do was sit on the sofa in his lounge and stare at the wall, mortified and humiliated. His wife held the family together, somehow. He did not feel he could ever write again.  He stayed under this spell for a very long time. One day though, his young daughters interrupted his grieving process. They asked him if he could make their old scruffy secondhand bicycles look nicer. James obeyed, in a dutiful but not joyous manner. He carefully painted the girls bicycles in bright shades of red, frosted the wheel spokes with silver and when the paint dried he added tiny silver and gold stars all over the bicycles. ‘A field of exquisitely detailed constellations’. James couldn’t stop painting stars, the girls wanted their bicycles back and grew impatient. When at last he handed the bicycles back to the girls, they pedalled off up the road, on their magical ‘new’ bikes, completely thrilled and excited. The next day, his daughters brought home a little girl from school, who asked if he would paint stars on her bicycle. He did it. When that was done, another little girl turned up and soon there was a whole queue of little girls wanting him to paint stars on their bicycles. 

James, one of the worlds greatest writers, spent weeks painting thousands of stars on little girls bicycles in his garage and as he did so, he began to recover. He realised that he really did want to keep on creating things and as he did so, he was healing, something was coming back to life within him. He thought, ‘I will write about this someday’, when he thought this he realised he was free and the creator had returned.

Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr/Instagram Group Showcase – 9 February 2020

“I’m with Edvard Munch, who said photography can’t compete with painting, because it can’t deal with heaven or hell”, said David Hockney in today’s Sunday Times. I’m inclined to disagree with this and of course, I can point to this weeks showcase to support my case. Our musical choice matches perfectly, love, loss and the nature of reality. Heaven and hell? Oh yes, having lived full lives, if we cannot cure mortality, should we at least die trying…? The one thing humans have to save them of the depths of despair is humour and like many I have a strong one, Hockney does too “Do you know why laughter is important?” he asks, “It’s the only time as human beings that our fight-or-flight response is turned off. It’s good for you.” I couldn’t agree more…

I hope you all love this weeks mobile photography and art showcase as much as I do. Thank you to all the talented artists for submitting your works to our showcase this week.

We are so excited with our first Instagram TAKEOVER with @Pyschephoto – Robin Cohen. Cohen is a respected artist and has been granted full access to our Instagram account and she is doing such a sterling job. We are so proud of her! Cohen is not only a respected artist, a professional psychoanalyst and perhaps more importantly, to me personally at least, a good friend. We have not handed out the keys to our accounts before and Cohen is definitely the right person to kick us off this new and exciting area for us, she holds them for another six days, please take a look at what she’s doing for us all.

On days three and four this week, Cohen highlighted three of our favourite mobile artists, @marshadraws – Marsha Estes as you can see in the first stunning image below, Estes has a very unique style of mobile photography and it’s one that we adore. In the second image below you will see an image by our incredible Portrait of an Artist editor, Ile Mont – @ilemusi – who Cohen describes as ‘she is a queen of blur’ and we couldn’t agree more!  In the third image Cohen highlights @sirreal also known as Chad Rankin – a mobile artist that we have long admired too. The fourth image is stunning and it’s by @psychephoto herself! I totally adore it and Cohen writes “Day 4 of the @psychephoto takeover!! I’m thankful today for all of the artists that have existed on this planet, who have uplifted, stimulated, challenged and inspired us. Thank you also to Joanne and @theappwhisperer for providing such a beautiful forum for mobile art. 🦃🦃🌷💗💞🙏😍🙏🙏” – How beautiful is that?
