This updated version of the original deliriously madcap fantasy once again features the soaring song stylings of demented diva Joey Arias surrounded by an eye-popping theatrical extravaganza conjured by a team of puppeteers under the direction of Basil Twist. Channeling lurid celluloid dreams, macabre nightmares and bizarre premonitions, the adventure begins with an alien abduction and concludes with a stupendous Busby Berkeley-esque finale. Along the way, the throaty chanteuse belts out pop, rock and jazz standards in addition to some original tunes by Alex Gifford as Twist and company work their magic with vintage marionettes, anatomically correct puppets and fantastical scenic elements.

At present living in Pays de Loire, France. Works in oils or acrylics on board or canvas. Use of collage and newpaper as principal part of design.
Living in the heart of the Andulucian mountains, poor and frustrated, I turned to painting as a way of release.  I soon discovered it was my missing link the part that is always in front of you but you never see!  Spain gave me the colours I love and the passion I feel.  Inspired by a Picasso  documentary and the simple way he used shape, form and colour allowed me to do my latest collection. I love the characters of the normal man or woman in the street and I’ve endeavored to capture this in its simplist form. Showing love, anger, disputes between races, old love, and a soupson of humour .  I hope you enjoy and that they will impress upon your memory.  Please contact me at http://www.artslantParis or Amsterdam under christine greenslade or e-mail to purchase originals or limited copies.  telephone:00 33 241610986
