Billy Childish
this strange world of plants, and water, and silence

About

I first read Joseph Conrad’s 'The Heart of Darkness' in the late 1970’s - it left a lasting impression upon my psyche and writing. The view of river and trees in these paintings, featuring a lone X-craft (2nd world war mini submarine), are taken from the view from my bedroom window. The river Medway, which runs below my house, is another important water-way that empties into the Thames Estuary: what Conrad terms as ‘The old Heart of Darkness’. My family has a long connection with the river and the Dockyard at Chatham and I still live and paint in this town where I was born. Conrad also lived and wrote in north Kent quite near to where I live. (The Heart of Darkness is narrated on board a small vessel resting at anchor off Gravesend, a town on the River Thames 6 miles from my home).
