Waterloo moonlight, under I stood it? Strutting of sorts on the tarmac black; it frosted. Skid on forth. Then in front, right there, concealed crudely behind the mesh of metal so tall. Eroded its line the tombstone slab jutting archaically from earth. Council; Its bleak. So dam dull the block of rock, so stark and lonesome but subtley blue hued cast from sidestreet arches.

'Heavenly Father'. Before His Passing.

My father was a fantastic man. Kieran Hampson was his name, and he was the life and soul of most social situations. Warm, gentle and very funny, he was from a big Anglo-Irish family and was raised in Palmers Green, London, as one of six children. Growing up in a Catholic household, he was rebellious to his upbringing. He was a talented carpenter and turned his hand to making and crafting - he practically renovated our home from scratch. He was a loving father, friend and husband and had all the attributes of a great man who was exceptionally generous. Working hard to provide for his family, he had four children with my mum and grafted relentlessly to provide for a happy upbringing.

BenjaminHampson_Wealth.jpg

'Wealth', by James Hampson & myself. Drawing parallels with the ideals of PT Barnums.

Mine and James Hampson’s work focusing entirely on the wealth of body and spirit. Wealth is something that can course through our bodies; a confidence of spirit and a connectivity with our body that allows us to explore the world without fear of reprisal. Reprisal and/or judgement. Judgement as someone else's subjective view, a subconscious belief in divine punishment for trying something society sees as beyond us or not for us.

Focusing on various elements of the mind and its invention on the body. For example, wanting to model a body that draws parallels with that ideal of PT Barnums 'the foundation of success in life is that of good health'. Since Health is defined having not only an abundance of physical attributes - but, in this case that, of social and mental capacities for growth. Acceptance is important for some, but acceptance of ones own desires to explore what they can do and to have the freedom to express oneself with enjoyment and abandon.

We live in a world of law and order. Sometimes society weighs heavy on ones ambitions. Freedom and power, spiritual growth and being is this body.
