Last month I had an opportunity to visit artist David Mabb in his studio a few miles from William Morris's Red House. You may remember him from the "Smash the Bourgeoisie" post. These paintings (on Morris wallpaper) come from a series called Rhythm 69 which can seen in its entirety here along with an essay discussing the installation. I wish I could buy one (or four) of these paintings but David is hoping to sell them as a set, all sixty-nine---so my next wish is that I owned a large corporate headquarters with lots of wall space! In fact, why doesn't Sanderson buy these?
