william merlin jarrett jarrett : raceplain clothing

Hal Jarrett : the baron unsheathed,volume 12 chapter 17,'from a young age,william was always fascinated with what he liked to call his "baron"-a bizarre nickname he used to have for jewish genitalia and the hindquarters of shrimps

Hal Jarrett : all content written below is drawn from wills autobiography,'the baron unsheathed'coming soon to all good bookshops

Hal Jarrett : This man is unstoppable. You may like to think you have met men like him, but you are very wrong. underestimate him at your peril, loathe him at your leisure, he does not care which you choose.The breed I am talking about has nothing to do with your average sweaty flaccid midriff bearing british male,no the man of whic...h I speak carries himself differently, his eyes pierce through you as if you were a speck of cow muck on his shimmering windscreen.His clothes are immaculate, yet he has no fear of getting his hands dirty when the occasion arises, his face clean yet gritty, truly a mans man none too concerned with his metrosexual fellows whom he dismisses with no backward glance.In all his pursuits he triumphs, for failure will not be tolerated and if his aura could be seen, it would form a billowing cloud of fire and flint clods tearing at his opposition.

Upcoming Show

Dec 11th- January 15th ::Private view on the 11th Dec::

Tinhead - Le Mulsanne Straight

Having just graduated from Brighton where he studied illustration, Tinhead has already made a name for himself via the record sleeves of Oxford legends Foals. Working mostly with pencils and pens, Tinhead also dabbles in film, photography and in recent months printing. "I am a wizard. I have an obsession with stationary although I use probably 5 % of it. I draw mostly at nightime, like nightwolf."

Drawing from his own personal exprience Tinhead plans to bring motor racing to The Frontroom. Filling it to the brim with old imagery, sounds, videos and typography. Re building and creating moving objects within a haze of maths and physics. "It will be sheer erect drama, penetrated right into the pussy of your living room, it will smell of oil, fuel and exhaust and at times it will be very loud."

Style is the answer to everything.
Fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous day.
To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without style.
To do a dangerous thing with style, is what I call art.
Bullfighting can be an art.
Boxing can be an art.
Loving can be an art.
Opening a can of sardines can be an art.
Not many have style.
Not many can keep style.
I have seen dogs with more style than men.
Although not many dogs have style.
Cats have it with abundance.
When Hemingway put his brains to the wall with a shotgun, that was style.
For sometimes people give you style.
Joan of Arc had style. John the Baptist. Jesus. Socrates. Caesar. GarcĂ­a Lorca.
I have met men in jail with style.
I have met more men in jail with style than men out of jail.
Style is a difference, a way of doing, a way of being done.
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water, or you, walking out of the bathroom without seeing me.

(Charles Bukowski)
