Solo Show Work Now Available

All the works in my solo show at Clutter Gallery are now available online for worldwide sales.

So this is your chance to add a serious piece of Mechtorian art to your fabulous collection.

The show is open to visit in person until September the 2nd at Clutter Gallery (163 Main St, Beacon, NY 12508, USA).

This is my first solo show on the East coast in almost a decade.

“The Future Ain’t What it Used to Be.” 
A retro-futuristic look back at how the present doesn’t quite deliver on the promises of the past. A tongue in cheek view of our own world through mechanical eyes from an alternative history.

In part this show represents my reaction to world events over the last few years.

You can view and purchase all the works here : doktor-a-solo-show

Duet

When they agree and play in harmony the results are uplifting and beautiful.
But when they disagree. And are not on the same page.

It is worrying how quickly things descend into chaos.

This will be my first show in France.

Full reveal soon.

The Winner!

Gordon Selwyn Bennett purchased a nice new topcoat and hat in a vivid green hue.
So uplifted was he with his new apparel, that he wished as many people as possible should share in it’s finery.
So he entered the first of what was to become large yearly races around Retropolis.
With no mind for practicality or the Grand Prize he insisted on sporting the unsuitable clothing.
Getting ahead of the crowd seemed the best way to show off his lovely jacket so he did just that.
Staying there for the duration of the race.
It was such a delightful surprise that this first time racer should be such a natural, that the crowd took him to their hearts.
And afterwards the local team adopted his shiny green tone as their official colours.

This new Mechtorian piece was created especially for the “A journey into the Universe of Art Toys” exhibition. He is currently on show at the Tolosa Puppets International Center at the Topic Museum in the city of Tolosa, in Spain. Organised and mounted by the awesome Art Toy Gama collective.
