Description

Kung Fu with David Carradine has much to answer for in my life. Along with Star Trek, it shaped the kind of world I wanted us to live in. It started an interest in the philosophy and culture that lay at the heart of the series, which eventually brought me to Sun Tzu's Art of War.

Written around 25 centuries ago, The Art of War may be the oldest strategy book ever written.

I remember the story about Sun Tzu being challenged by a warlord to train women from the palace. Sun Tzu divided the women into two groups and put a favourite concubine in command of each.

Sun Tzu set the women a simple drill and made sure they knew what to do. When they started, they burst into laughter. Sun Tzu said this failure to obey was the result of the commanders and promptly beheaded the concubines. The next time, the drill was perfect.

Motivational posters seem to be having another surge in popularity, so I took those two ideas and gave them a reboot. Moral of the story - quit while you're ahead.

I combine photography, painting, poetry and digital to create something new. Each piece is unique, reflecting what I see and feel.

In reality Lisa Smithies's dramatic manipulated photo is every bit as beautiful as I'd imagined it would be from its posting. This image of a martial arts master is wonderfully expressive and poetic.

This is a very interesting piece and I gave it to my brother as he is a guitarist. He loves it.
