Henner’s put on hold

24 06 2010

I’ve just seen that there is a nother discrepency with my Bic biros with the second picture of ‘Henner’s’ my Boss’s son. On the first version the fault was mine. I used a lower grade bic biro and the difference was obvious. However with ‘Henner’s 2.0’ I don’t know what’s happened. I’ve used the same two pens however the colour seems to have changed. Ink, Paper, the dayligh lamp shinning on it, I really don’t understand what’s gone wrong,. however the difference in the colour sticks out like a saw thumb.

So over 100 hours … wasted.

My Biro Art

11 04 2010

I’ve spent many months practicing drawing with a Biro pen. It’s going O.K. but of course practice make perfect.

I started on this wave, but after many hours (don’t ask how many) I decided that it was a project that I’d ‘come back to’. It didn’t go too well, however it is the first picture half serious attempt at drawing I’ve done for over two years. Well you know, taking a Degree in Drawing and image making, one doesn’t really get the opportunity to draw!


I’ve also taken on the mammoth task of drawing my boss’s son. I’ve just finished the final preliminary drawing. Again, I don’t like it, but that’s what a preliminary is for, making the making mistakes and working out certain aspects before the final piece.

Text Narrative Installation – By Matthew Scarlett

6 04 2009

This is my latest project, a text narrative project. This originates from my “No admittance” rant that I did last year after experiences some very over zealous gallery curators in 2007. I’ll go into a bit more detail later, but for now enjoy.



Sara Watons’ Artist Performance

6 04 2009

Sara Watson is an amazingly open minded and experimental artist. I was able to view her latest piece, a performance entitled ‘Good Weekend‘. This involved Sara lying on the floor asleep for over 30 minutes. It was an amazing, spiritual performance! I never been much for performance art, but this was something else. Sara has done some other installation work, but I’m still getting over her performance piece.

Crazy Typeface, Inspired By Jim “The Duke’ Tewksbury.

Can you see what it says?

This is a piece of work for my text narrative project. This is inspired by James Tewksbury “jim The Duke” who was in the same year as me When I studied Graphic Design at the Falmouth school of Art and Design. Jim (James) used to come up with this interesting if illeadgable typeface. It was so complex that I had to ask him to decipher it for me.

FA2002 – Proposal

28 02 2009


Having done a placement at Seabase in Newquay (my old home) I’m attempting to find out what home really means to me. Is it limited to a location, memories or maybe a commentary on my current state of mind or circumstances after the failure of my marriage?


  • To challenge how I see myself, both inside and outward.
  • To retrace some of my formative years as an artist as I return to where I believe my art life began, Newquay in Cornwall.
  • To further my documentation techniques.
  • To build a portfolio of work that I can present for promotional purposes at the end of the course. I am doing this so I can establish myself as an artist in the South West.


As I don’t have all the resources and facilities that the University has to offer, I have decided to use traditional image making methods as my main tools.

FA2002 Proposal

24 01 2009

In God We Trust

Being a member of ‘The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints” (commonly known as the Mormon’s) all of my life, one could say that religion is important to me. I would to create a project based on people relationship and social interaction with religion, whether for good or bad, from a personal perspective, or from a media perspective.


Due to my location, I would prefer to split my studio time between researching around the Lancaster area, and time in the studio.


I’ve have an interest in both paper sculpture and installation art, and I would like to develop further with both. I would also like to include some drawing as well, whether it be in planning of the installation, or in the final piece.


– gain a better insight into the world of religion.

– To better understand installation art, looking at aspects such as, construction, transportation, presentation and cost.

– create a fusion of contemporary religious artists and installation art.
