winter

brown leaves

featuring death

fallen,

dead on the floor, unwanted nuisance, brushed aside,

shrivelled up shadows of their former selves,

serve little purpose other than fertiliser,

impotent and no longer productive,

degenerate, rotting, eaten by disease,

forgotten by spring…

Brick

brick

useful art

This piece shows the fusion of a number of different art forms and is quintessentially philosopherontap. Constructed from an original loose pile of bricks bound with a traditional sand and cement mix the wall represents a society that has regained its sense of proportion. It is a mixture of artesanal endeavour combined with a wry sense of perspective that is not always in tune.

Photographed on location in Lincoln at the house of the artist. Offers over £500k will be considered.

Yum yum – really good recipe

lamb and chorizo buger

lamb and chorizo burger

Mix a pound of minced lamb with a wodge of chopped chorizo. Add a couple of chopped red chillies, a hunk of coriander, salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Split into four burgers and hand shape. Fry for a suitable amount of time and towards the end crumble some cheese on top. No need to add oil into the pan as the burgers have plenty of fat. Cover the pan with an ovenproof bowl to melt the cheese. If necessary add some water into the pan to steam and heat the cheese. Whilst your burger is cooking put two halves of a bun cut face down into the frying pan to toast. I also chopped a couple of chestnut mushrooms and cooked alongside the burger.

Eat with salad and a dressing of your choice. We used mango, lime and chilli.
