another idle observation from a derelict inner city squat inhabited at the time by the ratty brilliant doomed and occasionally quite demented band called The Real Fucking Idiots….. shot a very long time ago in Sydney before it aquired it’s shiny city status…. it goes with the image I just uploaded called drug doll and another image that has been here for a little while called jesus died…..

it was a time and place… it was real and it was unreal and it’s echo remains…. time passes and time stands still…. fuck art let’s just live

    These are an interesting selection Juilee, this one and “Jesus Died” really seem to conjure up the days the raw drug subculture and of clever graffiti, before so much of it became stylised spraycan art.
    Drug doll and To Death Us Do Drug (which I found my way to via Jesus) show us another side of life in the drug world. It’s sad so many “thinking artistic” people succumb and are destroyed by drug abuse. Thanks for showing these works and explaining your connection to them, it must be heart wrenching for you.

  • hi Matt and thanks…. I’m working my way up to something and laying down the distant past first if that makes sense…… To Death Us Do Drug and these ones and some that will follow are very personal….but that time also took me somewhere else….. maybe what I’m saying is that these images are part of my truth…. no construction here….. just part of the path I’ve been following …… thanks agin
