Tumblr informed me that my blog turned 3 years old the other day. When I saw the email I realized how negligent I have been about posting work over the past year…current works and my, quickly becoming overwhelming, back catalog. A few months ago I started an instagram account @dutchslavetrade which is mostly photos of patrons with the works they have procured. Frankly, it’s just easier for me to hand off the work, snap a photo and post on that platform. However I still plan to get back to posting the works with their art-speak meanings on this blog.

I Knew You’d Come Crawling Back (Dub Version) 2013 acrylic and charcoal on 64cm x 96cm 70lb paper
Records, they’re a thing. Folks love to collect them, buy and sell them, talk about them, display them, walk around with them, take photos of them and a few people actually listen to them. They’ve been around for decades and will likely always be. Folks can’t get over records, nor can the myriad writers cranking out these types of articles. I didn’t even read that article but I’m sure it makes my point. It was the first one that came up when I googled “return” and “vinyl”. Googling “comeback, rebirth, still buying…etc” with “vinyl” will all produce similar results. It seems like every 3 months since 1993 or so one of these articles comes, unsought, across my radar. At that frequency, I am convinced there is someone somewhere saying “blah blah… records…blah blah.. vinyl..blah blah..7 inch…I only..blah blah..sounds better..blah…making a come back..blah..blah ..” every .3 seconds and deciding to write an article about it. So much surface noise.
een dutchslavetrade : gezellig
This 60 minute, mostly digital reggae, painting mix - complete with air horns and sirens - is also suitable musical accompaniment for other non-painterly early summer activities such as being out of doors while wearing shorts, watching yr friend stack charcoal incorrectly, driving to buy ice, studying for standardized tests, and mashing down Babylon.
Gezellig features songs by Courtney Melody, Pinchers, Cutty Ranks, Hollie Cook, Carlton Livingston, Super Cat, Junior Cat, Prince Jammy, Admiral Tibbet and more.
