Launch of DESIRE

The Laboratory Arts Collective will be celebrating the launch of their latest magazine DESIRE in collaboration with The Standard, West Hollywood, on November 12th. "Pushing the Pink or The Impossibility of Pink-ness" is included, however the opening of the essay requires a measure of desire combined with dexterity.

Rest in Beauty Mel - 3rd October 2015

STRUMPET & PINK was founded in January 2002 by artists Melanie Probert and Lisa Z Morgan; a capricious idea that began life on the back of a tube ticket........

Melanie Probert (Strumpet) 1965 - 2015

So the story began and so it continued with laughter, tears, beauty, frustrations and life's blessings and complications for over decade. But the journey, at least this stage here on earth, has now come to an end as the rare woman that was Melanie Probert, the Strumpet in the equation, died on 3rd October 2015. 

It is with sadness and disbelief that these words are written. Words, which cannot begin to convey the loss of such a unique and gifted woman. My thoughts go to her wonderful husband with whom she found the happiness and love that she both needed and deserved and to her beautiful daughter with gorgeous new life in her arms.

My Dear Mel, may your journey be filled with all of the wild flowers, beauty and wonder that you sought and please continue with your custom of wearing inappropriate garments in inappropriate places. And most importantly smile that expansive smile and laugh your very particularly dirty laugh all of the way.

Farewell Lovely xxx

The Long Beautiful Wait

In the words of The Laboratory Arts Collective "You have heard the whispers and it's true. The long beautiful wait is over." At least it is almost over. DESIRE launches on 24th October. It has been an absolute joy and pleasure to work with The Laboratory on the materialization of "Pushing the Pink or The Impossibilities of Pink-ness."
For now, you have the pinkest of teases..........

Numerical Patterns of Memory on 11th

It is 2 years since my siblings and I cremated our Mother. Recently, I found these small films, taken on 11th July 2013, which I realize now was exactly 2 months prior to our saying goodbye. Mum was nearing the end of her life and yet her garden was overflowing with life and the flowers teamed with the heavy hum of pollen laden bees.
