I went to see Jacques Brel: When we have only Love. Everything was great. The show was fantastic, tickets and drinks reasonable and the place is very cosy and warm. I loved the experience and I will go back.

This series of mixed media paintings is based in the story of the ancient Egyptian goddess Neith, the creator of both primeval time and the everyday. One of her many aspects is that of the Cow of Heaven. Each morning she gives birth to the sun. It is said she does this parthenogenetically, meaning without a male partner.

It is also said that Neith created the world by "speaking seven magical words". What could they have been, these powerful words that created the world?

"I used a combination of painted and found papers, acrylic paints and medium, pastels and stenciled drawings to create this series. The drawing of Neith, which I made into four different-sized stencils, is my own version of what she might have looked like.

"I love all kinds of paper. I tear it, sand it, paint it, burn it, glue it, glaze it, layer it, scribble it, splatter it and mark it with gestures using ink, graphite, acrylics, chalk, and oil pastels. I worked as a writer for many years, but in my visual work I found something that goes beyond language: an attempt to touch a primal, psychic place both in myself and the viewer." - Chris Cinque
