Music as played when I dj'd the opening party for the Hepworth Gallery Stanley Spencer exhibition.
The music was inspired by the themes he explored in his work as well as artists who loved his work such as David Bowie. Spencer's work considered sex and religion, he was obsessed with the idea of his home village Cookham as his heaven. He also explored work and leisure, english eccentrics, resurrection, the countryside and gardens as well his distress at his memories of war. His private life became tangled, he left his wife and entered into a second, unconsumated marriage.
His work bridged the holy and the sordid, the exhibition Of Angels and Dirt represents all.
