Collection: Ceri House

"Years ago, at the time such things were current, I did a portrait of the very young Ceri House in the Destroy T-shirt the Sex Pistols performed in.  It was painted in hardboard in two halves and the bottom half, with the word Destroy beginning to shatter, somehow got lost.  No disaster, punk recoiled from posterity.  Ceri became a painter and he often incorporates unusual materials into what he does.  In the making of his new paintings there is an echo of the word that disappeared.  Paint always destroys a fresh canvas, luckily.  The moment it lands something even better is happening, the sound of a human being at work, thinking.  Here is Ceri." - Humphrey Ocean
