TP on Radio 3

This Thursday, 1st Februrary at 21.30 on BBC Radio 3 TP takes part in a programme in which Philip Dodd and guests explore Pablo Picasso's 1907 work Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, which would become arguably the most important painting of the century. Picasso portrayed five prostitutes gazing out at the viewer, their faces bold and solicitous, apparently inspired by African and Oceanic carvings that he had seen in Parisian museums.
The programme, which lasts for 30 minutes, will be available to listen again after broadcast until 8th February

    Art in America

    To celebrate 40 years of work on A Humument which was started in December 1966 TP has created six new humument pages. Unusually the pages were made outside London, whilst TP was a visitor at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton during November 2006. One of the new pages features in the current issue of Art in America.

    first footer

    michael c is more than welcome since he qualifies not only as icebreaker at this blog
    [for blog it is and not {as it might have seemed} restricted to blood relatives]
    but as first footer of 2007
    albeit that he is not able to carry a piece of coal across its threshold
    and may not even have dark [or any] hair

    of hair there will
    as my solstitial haircut approaches
    be more anon

    but meanwhile if michael c should get in touch via website
    i can tell him of the gift that i must traditionally give
    in exchange for the first footers conceptual coal

    Closing 2006

    last artrite of 2006...
    the celebration just after christmas of 40 years work on
    A Humument.
    made a humument fragment using the final autumn leaves in talfourd road
    a wedding of an old project with a new
    and thereby another epithalamium for fiona who now owns it

    unlike shane warne i have not retired
    and am glad to take the field again this new year .
    currently my batting average is 1 run as is my aggregate and highest score
    made at the oval in the cricket match to celebrate my fiftieth birthday.
    i may reach seventy this season [years not runs] if we get to empire day
    [whats that mum?] . i cunningly chose to be born on may 24th since empire day was a half holiday from school.....
