Mike Philbin artist - the slaughtered paintings r.i.p. - oil on canvas hardboard etc 1995

THE SLAUGHTERED PAINTINGS R.I.P.

oil on canvas 3ft by 4ft 
many of you know me as a writer of surrealistic novels and a Free Planet blogger but there are far fewer of you who know of my former life, as a figurative artist. To remedy this, here’s a brief selection of the twenty or more 'wonderfully therapeutic' life-size oil paintings I created through the 1980's.

of course, I took an axe to many of these artworks in 1995, before moving from Cambridge to Oxford.

For me, these raw psycho-realist i.e. emotion-derived paintings, were obviously the basis for the thirteen Hertzan Chimera novels.


the culmination of all that effort, the FP vs WW novels.
