Today I had the great delight of attending the private view of ‘Frozen Estuary and other paintings of the Divine Ordinary’ an exhibition of Billy Childish’s work currently at Chatham Historic Dockyard. I can say nothing other than the work is simply stunning and very engaging. I could have simply stayed for hours and lost myself in some of the work.
I have had the pleasure of having 1 or 2 chats over the last 4 years with Billy and others in Deaf Cat. He is a wonderful person, very creative with great and interesting ideas and stories to share, but also a very ‘interested in others’ sort of person. He has a unique style and way of looking at life … and I have both enjoyed and been made to think by our brief encounters.
If you can get to this exhibition – it’s there until 30th September – then get yourself there!
