“As dreams are made on…” Austin Osman Spare and his Muses, with Stephen Pochin – LIVE
A lavish slide-talk investigating the varieties of visual inspiration behind Spare’s portrayal of women, and the female nude.
Ranging from Classical allusion, Edwardian theatre postcards, life-models, and cinema posters… Who was his wife? And were all those drawings really of her?
Stephen Pochin first encountered AOS on the sleeve art of music by John Zorn, and Coil. The urge to find out more eventually led to him curating the retrospective exhibition ‘Cockney Visionary’ at the Cuming Museum in 2010. He runs Jerusalem Press, with titles that explore Spare’s art and life, featuring the writing of Dr William Wallace. He lives in south London with his family.
