Stop wriggling and let me love you


Artist Chris Getliffe has been blogging about the creation of his new mural, commissioned as part of this year's MAX, with the theme chosen by Brockley Central readers.

His work replaces the Hendrix mural, lost to vandalism. Thanks to Chris for his work. We love it.

"Stop wriggling and let me love you"

What is that supposed to mean? Is that a rape joke, by a station, with bail hostel nearby and drug dens in the vicinity?

I love it! Very nice work, Chris.

Furry subculture reference in public art? I hope I didn't pay for this through my taxes.

Sorry Chris, I really don't like it.

You're given a theme of 'The kindness of strangers' and this is what you come up with.Predatory sexual suggestiveness between animated figures. FAIL

Stop being a geek and getaliffe.

Typical selfish artist. It's not about what is appropiate for the community or that space it's about his interests and freaky pastimes.

Background for those of you unaware of furrydom. Nice joke on us Chris.

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=furry

Those who do enjoy the erotic/adult side of furry are, like those who participate in any other sexual fetish or behaviour, almost always harmless in their indulgence of their fantasies, which usually involves erotic art and roleplay, and may involve consenting activities with fellow adults while in costume. Why people get uptight about what is such a cute, silly and affectionate expression of pleasure between two (or more) consenting adults when there's much worse out there to get worked up about such as child abuse, I'll never understand.

It's about fun, people. Try it sometime.
n. Furries often attend conventions.

adj. Furry art incoroprates many diverse forms of media.

Some commments here are very mean. It was two days' solid work for the artist. It looks quirky and different. A welcome break from the PCness of 'leading black artists'.

Pete said...

I think people are just a bit surprised. It will hopefully grow on people who aren't too keen on it.

I definitely appreciate the effort and time that the artist has put in but you can't say it isn't "challenging".

Tressillian James said...

I actually think it reflects the artistic tastes of our communicty just as much as the graffiti murals around the corner and the other two protraits do. Brockley is filling up with students from goldmiths and young urbanites commuting back and forth to the city. To have a new piece of urban art refelcts the diversity of our community. I want more of this kind of art - not less

mintness said...

This is so wrong. I think I like it.

fred vest said...

i think it's pretty good - it's stretching it a bit to draw parallels with rape or furry sex, i can read the message in two different ways, one of which i'd slag off as wishy washy liberal crap,and an other of which i think has a bit more resonance about alienation and coldness of the individual and their relations to each other and with society in today' world, i think the later message edges it in my mind, although i've no idea what the intentions of the artist was

Brockley Nick said...

Good lord, I agree with you Fred

The guy is a furry though. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Oy vey

Anonymous said...

I think Tresillian James' comments are the most interesting, I think it will appeal to the younger crowd and it's about a changing of the cultural guard. We're coming to a point where we're post pc. Whites are increasingly feeling more comfortable around blacks and so there's less egg shell walking culturally.

Everything can be read in multitude of ways. You can have a direct statement. "I like the colour red" and it could be that the comment is read ironically, or red is allusion to something else and so forth. But what you do is look for the most likely interpretation, whilst not dissmissing others.

The guy is a suggestive individual, on his blog where he talks about the painting process, there's a picture of another guy, a spectator watching him paint and he makes the comment.
"...this guys creepily in a lot of them, i don't remember him, but i now fear for life & bottom"

It appear he has some preoccupation with sexual predators.

I would have loved to like what was put up but it's even executed particularly well cf the shadows.

Am I the only one to interpret it as a child wanting to love its toy animal but getting rejected?

Sex didn't even register, but then again perhaps I get enough of that and the rest of you are CLEARLY gagging for it.

Andy you're culturally literate, so it's obviously gone over your head. Most art is about sex and death.

Getliffe said...

Hello

It's me, Getliffe, the person 'responsible' for the new mural. Some one gave me a heads up on the comments here so thought I should also post in the sense of community spirit, (although slightly unfortunately this compulsion comes as I’m already late to go out).

I'll try and address some of the posts made, some of which have come as an amusement, some as unfortunate.

1.It never occurred to me that this image could be deemed of a sexual nature. Sex & Sexuality is a theme I use a lot & this was never intended. If you see it as the rabbit being 'mounted' then the things going on in your head are far stranger then mine, and I congratulate you.

2. If I receive a commission I do it in my style, that’s why I’m booked. I pay mind to the surroundings though which is why the colours I use mirror the far left image. I guess I would be failing if my worked was liked be everyone. Oddly having broad appeal has always been a concern for me.

3. If you painted then you'd know why it took 2 days.

4. An image I guess should always be open to interpretation & I generally hate to force an intention on people, but I’ll make and exception in this case. Catman’s right (at least for me).

5. For those that don't like the piece I hope it grows on you, (or ceases to matter) over time. Of coarse you can go throw up your own piece, that’s the fun of accessible walls if you want to take the chance.

7.Speaking for myself I’ve never been a huge fan of the 2/3 murals (although I deeply respect the talent of the artist who did the Marley), many I know feel the same, in one sense that area is perhaps now slightly more reflective of the community.

8. If you get on a “overcrowded train and are reminded of alienation” I suggest talking to someone, or bring a book.

9. I’ve never been a Goldsmiths student.

10.I hate Hoxton.

That's all for what it's worth, I hope you enjoy the rest of the festival

All the best

Getliffe

Its a Pig ?? Isn't It

Anonymous said...

Perhaps we should take a moment to study the picture and maybe understand why it has different and conflicting effects on people.

For me, and I think that it is generally accepted, creativity is the practical evidence of the unconscious. The creator of the piece, whatever that piece is, is responding to his or her unconscious. There can be no doubt about this.

And the anon who said that all art is about sex and death is perfectly correct. But then *everything* is about sex and death. We can take some of the emotive element out of 'sex and death' if we filter them down a bit and call them 'change and control', which essentially is the same thing.

We can highlight some of these themes very well in the mural, and we can be helped by the artists own words from his blog.

Getliffe captions two of the pictures of him creating the mural:

"Big empty walls make me scared, and moist"

"at somepoint i really should take the time to make my dreads 'propper'"


These two statements are interesting because they are both very 'feminine'. One clearly states that there is a certain sexual arousal attached to him creating the mural, but it is a very feminine arousal "makes me... moist".

Secondly there is the comment about his hair, again expressing a feminine concern for his appearance and of attracting a 'mate'.

If we turn to the painting itself we see two characters, a stuffed toy figure and a slightly ambiguous female, possibly pubescent, figure. There is an undeniable tension between these two figures. The girl is desiring and demanding and the toy is reluctant, denying but ultimately accepting of the fact that a violation will occur. The girls grip on the toy is firm, controlling yet caressing as well. The hands are sensitively drawn.

The toy is a potent symbol of pubescence. Where once the toy was a possession to be cared for and nurtured, with the onset of puberty this turns into a more adult desire, the caring starts to have a sexual content and the exercise of control to achieve this desire becomes important.

There is also a great deal of phallic symbolism in the picture as well - the toys 'feet', it's arm and ears. The whole of it's head has become somewhat scrotal in appearance towards the bottom.

The 'X' symbol is dynamite of course. Picasso, when drawing his nudes often used an 'X' for the anus. Eric Gill in his diaries used an iconography for his sexual experiences based on an 'X'. Here the symbol explicitly states the denial of sexual gratification and it is a red and bloody 'X'...

The two figures represent the sexual ambiguity that the artist has expressed in his blog. He is both the girl struggling to understand the rigours of puberty and the toy reluctantly waving goodbye to an innocent childhood.

One final thing is the eyes - they are blank and un-seeing - the artist refuses to acknowledge (in this piece) the challenge of his own sexuality and that anything untoward is happening at all - and he continues with this in his reply to his critics on this blog: "It never occurred to me that this image could be deemed of a sexual nature."

All this is why the picture troubles some people - it's hitting below the belt (in many ways), it's stirring emotions that we mostly don't particularly want stirred when, for example, your rushing for a train at 7:30 on a rainy morning. In some ways it's little better than advertising, but the problem is it's not offering a solution to the desire - it leaves you hanging - and is therefore disturbing and unsatisfactory - possibly like the artist himself.

It may seem a little unkind to highlight the artists sexuality, but he leaves us little choice because he plastered it all over a wall.

Monkeyboy said...

love a bit of cod Psychology of a morning, and that last post had more cod than a north sea trawler.

Go bunny, go....

Anonymous said...

I must admit, it does look like a teddy getting buggered. But I find that less offensive than the Christian Voice poster.

Tressilliana said...

Monkeyboy, please don't ever stop posting here! 'More cod than a north sea trawler' - brilliant.

I was gobsmacked to see that the artist says 'It never occurred to me that this image could be deemed of a sexual nature'. It never occurred to me that it could be anything else.

I see the human figure as fairly androgynous but more likely male than female. Maybe because that's because I tend to to assume that if A is pressuring B to do something intimate that B doesn't really want to do then A is most likely to be male and B female, even if B is actually a stuffed toy.

All of which probably says more about me and my preconceptions than anything else.

PS I don't like it much (on first viewing) and I'm glad I commute from Crofton Park so I won't see it much.

Innocent Bystander said...

You know how when you are little and you have a pet rabbit, you really want to cuddle it and stroke it but it wiggles and scratches and just wants to run off? And it makes you sad because all you want to do is show it how much you love it but it won't let you? That is exactly how I interpreted this. Maybe that makes me hugely naive but I much prefer my interpretation to the animal rape theme that so many other people seem to see. I like it.

Anonymous said...

Agree with Innocent Bystander. I also thought the figure was female; and saw that whole thing much in the sense of an over eager kid with a pet.

I'm gald though it is discussed. I'm glad it is not universally liked - I dont like the murals that were there previously.

Brockley Nick said...

I agree with innocent bystander also - but then I could never really see the "lisa simpson giving head" image in the London 2012 logo.

Anonymous said...

I (anon 09:30) didn't want to give an 'animal rape' impression at all - far from it - but wanted to highlight the puberty/adulthood scenario which I think is more relevant - and perfectly normal of course.

The picture expresses a perfectly normal scenario but one that is pregnant (!) with possibility and interpretation.

I did think of pressing on with the artistic role of the triptych with Jimi cast as a crucified Christ in the middle, Magdalene on his right but couldn't immediately place the left hand (new) panel well enough to form an argument.

Anonymous said...

Deeply distressed to see that a strong black figure such as Hendrix is replaced with a white boy/girl? and a rabbit. I dont blame the artist - I blame whoever made the decision re the commission. How was this decision made? This is so depressing

it wasn't commissioned to replace marley, some numb nuts painted over it. It was an opportunity for something new - that's all. Get over it.

I find it quite bizarre (and a bit disturbing) that people read sexual meanings into this mural. Maybe it could replace Rorschach inkblots in psychological evaluation?

I think it's OK - a bit sickly sweet if anything.

It's not bizarre nor necessarily disturbing.

It's just a freudian reading of the piece.

To the 'Freudian' anon.

As a matter of interest have you had training, or are you just an insightful amateur?

It may be worth going to getliffes blog where the mural is put into some context.

In his 'Random Bunny Strips' he deals with issues such as disability, violence towards children, violence towards women and AIDS, none in a terribly sympathetic way.

Marley is still there, Monkeyboy - it was Hendrix that someone painted over and Getaliffe's piece has replaced.

10.I hate Hoxton.


1. It's not the image that's deemed sexual, it's the combination of image and text that leads suggests a dominant and enforced relationship. There's a cartoon skunk called Pepe le peu who characterises that "stop wriggling and let me love you" vibe . I don't think anyone mentioned the rabbit being "mounted" that came from you.
2. The palette chosen are muted colours and the pink of the rabbit is calming. The shadow on the left ear falls differently to how the it falls elsewhere if there's a consistent light. It looks like a error.
3. A painting takes as long as takes
4. The artist's stated intention is one thing. But images take a life of their own; yes it is a child and a toy, but what that means is determined by many things; viewer psychology, social context- for instance we live a society where you have to ask before you photograph a child because of nefarious connotations.
5. I don't dislike the piece, it's ok, but I don't like it there, but so what.
6. you went from 5 to 7
7. To understand what you said, by paraphrase; you didn't like the 3 murals that were and neither do many in your social circle. You believe that your work now makes the murals more reflective of the Brockley community. This suggests a racial thing if so your views elide with Catman again.
8. That's a response to something that wasn't said, nevertheless jokey flippancy or not, images have a myriad of associative qualities as mentioned.
9. No one mentioned Goldsmiths
10. You hate Hoxton. Your previous work is on buildings around there.

Monkeyboy said...

What's with the snide remarks...again. It's not a competition to catch out the artist.

Not one person has mentioned anywhere on this site, how the hilly fields do went off yesterday, And is there anything on to night ?

In response said...

No one's trying to catch out the artist, what most people are trying to do is understand what's going on with that piece of work.

People that love art, love talking about art. It's function is to make you think.

Chris knows or should have known that this piece would provoke discussion. It's so different from what else is there Marley. Which were pretty straightforward pieces, his work isn't straightforward.

In many ways as mentioned its a disturbing piece of work. People are just discussing why it makes them feel that way. (The function of art? Why does something completely artificial, just words and paint, illicit a particular response? And then from that what does that say about us, the culture we're in.

You seem to be fed up with people talking about the work in ways that are not praiseworthy, you made the snide comment about cod psychology. Freudian interpretations handled with care are still regarded as academically legitimate ways of reading art.

If this is not your area, it will seem poncey, but that's how things are.

Monkeyboy said...

I'll leave it to those wot know then. Ciao.

Brockley Nick said...

Anon, I'm here now and it's very nice and chilled, more relaxed than two years ago. Music and food are both good. There's an article about what's on on this site and of there's the brockley max website.

The Cat Man said...

OMG, Nick - you mean to stay we were both a stones throw away from each other? I've just come back from hillyfields - it was very nice indeed. The music was good, and the drinks were good. Nice atmosphere, many poeple sitting outside the marquee on the ground just chilling.

A few hot guys there too.

Tamsin said...

I've also just come back - very chilled (take a warm coat or a blanket). But good music, an excellent line up and running about an hour late so worth going up now as they presumably won't bring a guillotine down at eight o'clock. (And the weathe may clear and the wind drop...)

Quote from a forwarded e-mail from the organiser:

"Among the acts are operatic diva Sally Silver, Meantime Bones (trombone quartet), Mazaika (a great violin-voice-accordeon double act), Marcus Andrews (great pianist), Gracie Patton (sultry cabaret singer), Keren'or Pezard and dancer doing a wonderful choreography to Beethoven's last quartet, the stunning Greenwich Trio (violin, cello, piano) and yours truly. All are local or have local connections. In case you want to come just for a short time, the anticipated timetable is:

4 Meantime Bones; 4.30 Mazaika (including some numbers with me); 5.15 Marcus Andrews; 5.45 Sally Silver; 6 Chihiro Ono (solo violin Bach); 6.10 Chihiro + me (Beethoven and Bartok); 6.20 Chihiro + Vlad Waltham (cello; Ravel and Handel-Halvorsen); 6.30 Keren'or Pezard Beethoven choreography; 6.50 Gracie Patten; 7.10 me, solo piano; 7.45 Greenwich Trio.

It wouldn't half be nice to see any of you there.

Julian"

Kate it was moira for the max - as the original article said. So what?

Ian up t'hill said...

I've got to admit I was unconvinced by this a first, although the whole stuffed furry animal bestiality thing never entered my brain until I saw it here - someone saw this and their first thought was it was a bloke violating a stuffed pig? Really?

I find it's actually improving as I live with it a bit. I do have one criticism though. It was painted over the top of the wrong bloody mural. All this time on and the awful - and now scabrous - Maya Angelou scrawl still sets my teeth on edge.

Bea said...

The thing that freaks me out with this picture is not the text or the sexual innuendo (which didn’t cross my mind until I read it here) but the fact that both the pig / rabbit / stuffed animal and the male / female look like zombies. What happened to their pupils?! I was expecting big manga style whoppers and instead there’s a blank stare – not wonder piglet’s wriggling to get away.

I can’t see the theme of “kindness” and “strangers” either although I do find the whole thing kind of strange.

Only good thing about this picture is that it makes the Marley one next to it look brilliant.

Brockley Kate said...

Thanks Ed - I just wanted to know who it is that made this decision.

Anonymous said...

Kate, could you tell me why you wanted to know who made the decision for the mural?

I agree, and think it may be important to know because I think a wrong decision was made, and I wonder who has the authority to grant such a decision.

Brockley Nick said...

Anon, it's not a question of "authority" to "grant" a decision. It's a private wall, which the owners have kindly given over to use for public art. The Brockley MAX team, who sorted the tryptych of murals in the first place, organised to have the vandalised mural replaced.

You don't like the result, that's fine. But regardless of your personal tastes, don't you think we should be applauding those who've given their time, energy and talent to turn a damaged wall in to a work of art?

Tressillian James said...

Presumably the owner of the wall anon - what type of thought police are you conjuring up here, who do you think needs to regulate this? It's art. Whether you like what was there before or not (and I would actually question a previous comment aobut Hendrix being a strong black role model), this is not a public owned space, nor does it have to have some empowering message. The murals around the corner don't. If you want something else why not comission something for the side of your house. If you are not in the conservation area it will be fine and you can have free choice over what goes up. Much like the owner of the wall here.

Tamsin said...

I like "kindness of strangers" turning into "kind of strange...".
Those who commissioned it - if I read an earlier post right - just gave the title to the artist and did not presume to dictate or vet any draft proposals. Which is understandable given the limited budget and limited volunteer time on the commissioning committee - they did have a Festival to organise as well, remember!

Tressillian James said...

Nick - didn't see yr post - in amongst my typos and sp. errors I think we are sayign the same thing.

Anonymous said...

Rather than allowing the wall to be used for a purpose I think it's a question of who chose that particular 'artist' to produce the 'work of art'.

Brockley Nick said...

@TJ - yes we are!

@Anon - what's your point exactly? Other than the fact you don't like that particular picture?

Matt said...

As has been stated in the previous thread about this, no Hendrix is not a strong black role model. The man was mixed race. If his virtuosity on the electric guitar made a role to any it was white teenaged boys.

Clapton loved him, Jeff Beck was awed by his ability, he is an influence on artists that range from Indie Pop to Jazz. And apart from anything else 40 years after his death he's still as cool as f*ck.

4x4 said...

Just seen the mural.
With art like this we are never going to be an Islington or Clapham.
I am never going to be able to walk down the road and get a coffe from Starbucks or an American Hot from Pizza Express.
The area will reamin shabby and my house price won't go up. Therefore I won't have a high enough deposit to get the hell out of here and live in a more affluent borough. Guess I'm destined to live in an 'artistic community' for the rest of my days.
