Brodick is back.
Having survived Afghanistan, Richard Brodick is now a fully qualified member of the Firm – an officer in the UK’s Secret Intelligence Service.
But what should be a proud moment, quickly turns sour. Dangerously so.
Despatched to Beirut at the height of the civil war, Brodick becomes embroiled with a mysterious Chinese operative known only as Fang. He finds himself in a new and dangerous game of double and triple agents, and double and triple crosses. Can he trust anyone, even himself?
Spy Dragon is the second in the Brodick Cold War spy thriller series, the follow-up to the bestselling Spy Game described by Luke Jennings, author of the Killing Eve series, as ‘A first-rate tale, with all the authority of first-hand experience’.

I like to re-evaluate my work afresh every time I enter the studio. Working atmosphere and continuity are important to me. I surround myself with a large collection of resources and research on Human Anatomy and Natural forms, for example bones, stones, flints, driftwood and other detritus. These resources become my framework or starting points. Rich visual supplies of personal imagery together with complex layers of memory and life experience are vital to the development of my work. As a child the structures of natural forms and the human body in Biology, Human Biology and Science always held a fascination for me. Beachcombing, walking, and collecting strange and interesting objects have always been a natural part of my everyday life.
I aim to make a visceral response to the world as I see it and experience it. I work in an intuitive and direct way with paint enjoying the way ideas evolve and cross fertilise as the work progresses. The initial images are constantly reworked. I work on several paintings simultaneously allowing images and ideas to ricochet from one painting to the other. Textured surfaces are built up as one image is submerged by another. Experiment, accident and a purposefully chaotic environment are integral to the way I work. I try to remain open to the unexpected as I work towards the final image.
I aim to make a strong image which takes on a force and presence of its’ own in a search for a visual truth.

Socrates left no philosophical writings himself, but luckily, he had a dog called TED who faithfully learnt and interpreted his sayings. Through TED and his canine friends, and with reference to famous philosophers, readers learn how dogs interpret the world.
In the book, the canine characters reveal why they obey humans, what their view on freedom is, what they think about cats, what makes them happy and what makes them suffer. With humour and doggy wisdom, along with some help from philosophers such as Plato, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and Diogenes, TED and his friends reflect on friendship, love and life.

‘Dura’ poses a simple question: what would have happened to Pacorus’ kingdom if the Silk Road was diverted through Uruk instead of running through Dura and Palmyra?
War has been a successful Duran export for many years. But now it is at the gates of my city and strangling my kingdom.
Parthia’s borders are now secure after decades of strife and a general peace has settled over the empire. The prosperous and thriving Kingdom of Dura basks in the glory of a Parthian Empire that is both united and strong. But from the desert bordering Dura comes an enemy that threatens the very existence of Pacorus’ realm, an enemy that strikes like a cobra and disappears like a phantom.
Seeing Dura shrivel before his eyes, Pacorus is forced to take drastic action to defeat a foe that is threatening to reduce his city to an impoverished desert outpost. In desperation, he leads Dura’s army into the vastness of the desert to seek a decisive clash with the so-called Chosen One, a battle that will decide the future of the Kingdom of Dura itself.
‘Dura’ is the fifteenth volume in the Parthian Chronicles series and follows on from ‘Pacorus’.

#Artwork: Cosmologies - Perspective and Pattern

https://helenscalway.com
Helen Scalway is an independent artist and writer. She was connected for many years to The Department of Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London, as a result of a keen interest in spatialities. She thinks about:
– the inner dynamics of relationships through the spatialities they produce, for example in complex and emergent spaces
– the sometimes incommensurable ways of being and seeing in the contemporary cosmopolitan city
– spatial metaphors which produce places and behaviours
– repetition, variation and change in thinking about the self as spatial process.
Increasingly she has become interested in the metaphor of the house or built structure as a visual metaphor for the self.
In order to think she uses visual means such as drawing, painting, collage, charting, model-making and book structures, as well as writing.

#Artwork: Ground Cloth Fragment: Chalk,Linen, wire, hand-collected and hand-ground sea coal, linseed oil, beeswax, sea-water, 59 x 44cm

Debbie Lyddon is an artist and maker based in Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk.
Her inspiration comes from being out in the natural world – from walking, noticing, collecting, being curious and learning. She makes mixed media cloths, sculptures, installations and drawings which originate from thoughts and memories that are a consequence of experiencing place and paying attention.
‘My work is informed by:
Things I have noticed.
Things I have remembered.
The light, water, the weather.
The processes and rhythms of natural phenomena.
Remoteness.
Impermanence, change and degeneration.
Sound, stillness and silence.

Cloth and traditional utilitarian hand-stitching are at the foundation of my work. Cloth is found in coastal environments in the form of tarpaulins, boat covers and sails and I allude to their functional purpose in my work. The materials that I use in conjunction with cloth – salt, bitumen, wax, varnish – are substances that are found in a coastal location and they play an integral part in relating the cloth objects I make to their surroundings.
My practice aims to evoke a multi-sensory interpretation of my surroundings to promote an awareness of the relationship between the visual, aural and tactile landscape.’

I began woodturning in 2000. Obviously I have a lace fe**sh. This I blame on Binh Pho, whose seminar in Albany I attended in 2003, after which I immediately went out and bought a dental drill and compressor and airbrush. The lesson is to attend as many woodturning conferences as you can, because you never know where one demonstration may lead you.
I am very interested in form, seeing different manifestations of form in wood, fiber, glass, and ceramic art, and I am exploring these differences and similarities in my art, together with the influences of texture and color.
Woodturning for me is a very rewarding pursuit, because in a relatively short period of time one can produce something of real beauty. Of course, from the sweep of the Grand Canyon to the structure of a microbe to the form of a flower, the greatest artist of all is nature. We cannot compete with nature, but we can be inspired by it.

A woman alone. A man obsessed with revenge. A history that refuses to die.
Nancy Tremayne has returned to London, a lonely and isolated figure, weighed down by a shroud of sorrow. Slowly, though, the possibility of a different life begins to emerge. A pathway that beckons her to a new future.
But how is she to take the first step, when the past is once more stalking her every move. A past that is violent and unrelenting. And who in this nightmare world can she trust when terror looms and death threatens?
A superb finale to the Tremayne Mysteries Series.

I was born in Sidcup Kent and have lived most of my life in S E London and Kent.
I studied Fine Art as a mature student at Ravensbourne College of Art and Design in the 1980s graduating in 1986.
On graduating I worked as a teacher in higher, further, secondary and adult education, in many disciplines including life drawing, water colour, drawing and painting. I worked with students of differing ages, abilities and levels. I also delivered teacher education to those working in the post 16 educational sector. Having gained an MA in Education I later moved into educational management.
After retiring in December 2017 as Principal of a large adult and community college in S E London I was able to intensify my practice as a painter, and have also been able to devote more time to my interest in music, singing and writing lyrics for my band Rugosa Hips.
At Art College I developed my interest in a wide range of painters from Cezanne, Braque and Picasso to the American Abstract Expressionists and was drawn to the work of the Cornish school of painters, for example, Barns Graham, Heron and Lanyon. Post college I established an interest working from the life model and more latterly still life and interiors.
As still life become more of a preoccupation, the work of Giorgio Morandi , Prunella Clough, Henri Fantin Latour and Henri Matisse, has informed my visual exploration. More recently, which reflects some of the current direction in my own work, I have been looking at the work of the 19th century painter Marianne North, Serephinede de Senlis, Georgia O’Keefe.
My subject matter is easily obtained objects that are around me in my living space, eg lemons, pots, flowers and plants.
The preparatory process always starts with observational drawings/watercolour sketches. The ideas are then developed using these first explorations to make further pieces of work using mixed media – ink, soft pastels and gouache. I consider these works on paper to be pieces of work in their own right, but they are integral to the process of making final pieces of work using oils on canvas; sometimes a single painting or a series from the same starting point.
In turn this process is about developing a visual language that will express my search for the innate beauty of my subject matter, but also about developing my search for my own visual voice to express my thoughts/emotions about being a woman; my body, my feelings, birth, life, aging, decay and finally death.
A wealth of symbolism is already attached to flowers and plants. I find it interesting to explore the dualism of flower/plant symbolism; the Christian notion of the flower as the symbol of chastity, as opposed to the Greco Roman tradition (and possibly older) of flowers/plants as emblems of spring, new life, regeneration and the impulse to procreation. In addition the use of the flower as a stereotypical symbol of femininity or woman, aligning women closely with nature and the notion of woman imprisoned within her biology. As the innocent vessel of the life bearing force or the bearer of uncontrollable and instinctive sexual desires.
In the past the painting of flowers/plants was regarded as a lesser genre; and therefore acceptable for women to pursue this area. In addition I suspect that is it is possibly the least theorised.
‘But maybe the flower painting has always been like a gangsters bouquet – inside, there’s a machine gun’ (Andrew Graham Dixon. 1992)
