Monet Monet Monet – Wayne Sleeth

9781910578278 Wayne Sleeth (born 1966) is a British contemporary artist living and working in France . In 1987 he visited Claude Monet’s estate at Giverny. In 2015 he embarked on a new, and on-running, series of paintings inspired by a profound appreciation of Monet’s work, in particular his ‘Nymphéas’ paintings.

To coincide with his appearance at Art3f, the Salon International d’Art Contemporain in Metz, France, and his simultaneous participation in the ’20 in 15’ project and exhibition at Mine Gallery in London in March 2016, the artist reveals a thematic part of his more recent production, physically in both Metz and London, and here in a richly-illustrated chapbook mirroring his own words and those of one of his ‘mentors’ in painting, Claude Monet.

Glovewatch: The Lost Gloves of Seething – Robin Hutchinson

Glovewatch_2016In December 2014 a single glove started a passion. Robin Hutchinson just wondered how many single gloves there might be lost in the Surbiton area. To discover an answer he asked people via Facebook to look for and record any sightings. Over a period of five months 819 were spotted. In November 2015 Robin decided to repeat the experiment but introduced a ‘glove spotting’ season running from the 1st of December to the 31st January.

The result from the Glovewatch 2015/16 Season is a remarkable 692 Lost Gloves of Seething.
If you want to join in the 2016/17 season then ‘like’ the Glovewatch – The Lost Gloves of Seething page on Facebook.

The Ghost And The Dog – Simon La Brea

9781910578247_aA short story written in free narrative verse, this farce is based on true events. The identities of the guilty and locations have been changed. Simon La Brea is an author and has had short stories published under a pseudonym in the more distant past. He has also written several unpublished novels, novellas, poetry and essays.

Author’s Note
This short story is written in the form of narrative verse, common in medieval times but all too rare in the modern age. Geoffrey Chaucer, through his Canterbury Tales, is the best known exemplar of this style. It lends itself superbly to a comic tale or even farce such as is presented here. The present example is in free verse and rhyme, unlike past practice which generally employed iambic pentameter.
