A walk though time

This painting was completed while I was studying Fine Art at Liverpool Hope University and it dates from 2016. It is called ‘Birth, Life and Death’ and is painted with acrylics in the Art Deco style using authentic Art Deco colours. It measures 145cm x 45cm.

It is the result of a collaboration between myself and fellow student Leila Chebbi who was studying dance, together with Life Model Sophie. It is intended as an alegory of the walk through the ages of life.

Dance is something I have always been attracted and fascinated by and is something I always regturn to. This was the first work in the genre and is something I will return to in March or April this year when there will be an exhibition of new work collectively entitled ‘The Dance’.

Strangely, it has never been exhibited outside of university and has never been offered for sale. It is a large painting and would dominate the average wall. I am open to offers if anyone is interested. Just email me at mikerickett007@yahoo.co.uk

I am a cereer journalist having worked for the London Dail Mail, Reuters and latterly the Liverpool Daily Post on Merseyside as well as the journalists’ leader in the region. I have experience as a crime reporter, feature writer, business editor and latterly, a senior sub-editor. My qualifications include a BA (Hons) English, from the University of Liverpool; a BA (Hons) Fine Art and an MA in Creative Practice both from Liverpool Hope University. I now divide my time between art and writing. I will shortly be publishing my first full-length novel, The Poseidon Files and as a taster I have written a short story which features the same central female character in which she talks about her world and her life. It is, however, essentially a ghost story.
