New work in the new Soldes Almanach Anthology No.8: Flower on life support, Ashera The Queen of heaven (also on life support), Rescue painting, Fortune, her wheel, action!
Soldes Almanac is the revival of Soldes Fins de Série, a Belgian quarterly first published at the beginning of the Eighties. In the words of Andy Warhol “the best magazine in the world” gained international renown few months after its creation, and was sold in nine countries, becoming an underground success on the sidelines of the media industry.
In 2010 Soldes was revived as an almanac on Marc Borgers' initiative, with Art Kiosque, Paris, and 5C éditions, Brussels. “Made like a work of art”, Soldes discusses arts, science, and society, exclusively in print format.
The Social Media Teaser / Trailer compilation reel for TBone Burnett's INVISIBLE LIGHT/Acoustic Space was accepted as worthy to be included in the AI-AP International Motion Art Awards 11
The cover image from TBone Burnett's INVISIBLE LIGHT/SPELLS LP booklet was deemed worthy of inclusion in the prestigious American Illustration Annual, No.42.
With just under 8,000 entries, amazingly, the jury selected THIS piece as one of 393 images for the book and exhibition.

Asherah | The Queen of Heaven on life support. 2022.
24 x24 “ acrylic and graphite on wood panel.
This is the Queen of Heaven / divine consort of God that the biblical prophets railed against. Here she is surrounded by Egyptian Ka spirit & "false” doors representing the passage between the worlds of the living and the dead Qadesh and her lion have here morphed into a circus lion tamer.
She does photosynthesis. She makes copies of DNA. The tree leaves on the tubes reference the Canaanite’s sacred Asherah poles, erected near altars, one of the many ways they violated God’s command to have no other gods or to worship a created image (Ex 20:3-6)”.
