A Sight for Sore Eyes

March 3rd, 2009

As a sight for sore eyes, after reading those rather long posts of a few days ago, can I offer you some pictures painted by Jamie Reid? Jamie was brought up as a Druid, and he is the great nephew of the old Chief Druid, and founder of the Ancient Druid Order, George Watson MacGregor Reid. As wikipedia says: Jamie Reid (born 1947) is a British artist and anarchist with connections to the Situationists. His work, featuring letters cut from newspaper headlines in the style of a ransom note, came close to defining the image of punk rock, particularly in the UK. His best known works include the Sex Pistols album Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s the Sex Pistols and the singles “Anarchy in the UK“, “God Save The Queen“, “Pretty Vacant” and “Holidays in the Sun“.

Jamie is a lovely gentle soul who we hope is coming to live in Lewes. He says I can share some of his pictures here, and if you’ve got a few bob you can buy his pictures at the Aquarium Gallery.
