18th May – 22nd September

Recently completed commission for The National Pastime Museum, USA. This involved making work related to the poem, Casey at the Bat by Ernest Thayer. The poem was first published in the San Francisco Examiner in 1888. It has become one of the best-known poems in American literature. The text is filled with references to baseball as it was in 1888. As a work, the poem encapsulates much of the appeal of baseball, including the involvement of the crowd.

Casey, “That ain’t my style”  pastel on paper 55 x 40 cm

Casey at the Bat is a poem by Ernest Thayer written and first published in the San Francisco Examiner in 1888. It is about a baseball team from the fictional town of Mudville (implied to be the home team). Mudville are losing by two runs in their last inning. Both the team and their fans believe they can win if Casey, Mudville’s star player, gets to the bat. However, Casey is scheduled to be the fifth batter of the inning, and the first two batters fail to get on base. The next two batters (Flynn & Blake) are perceived as weak hitters with little chance of reaching base to allow Casey a chance to bat. Surprisingly, Flynn hits a single and Blake follows with a double that allows Flynn to reach third base. Both runners are now in scoring position and Casey represents the potential winning run. Casey is so sure of his abilities that he does not swing at the first two pitches, both called strikes. On the last pitch, the overconfident Casey strikes out swinging, ending the game and causing Mudville to lose.

The White Gallinule (Porphyrio Albus)

When British ships belonging to what was known as the First Fleet were dispatched under Govenor Philip to Australia during the late 1780’s, their task was to found a penal colony to which British felons could be transported.

One of the by-products of this epic journey was a great upsurge in knowledge of Australian natural history. The White Gallinule was one of the creatures to be discovered during the expedition. It lived on Lord Howe Island, a small isolated pice of land lying some 480 km off the eastern coast of Australia. Men who visited the island were easily able to kill the birds with sticks and because of this fact it is likely that the White Gallinule was flightless. Once man began to visit their island home regularly the species’ days were numbered and it seems to have survived only a few decades after the coming of the First Fleet.

This picture is made on a page from an Encyclopaedia of around 1905. Within the body of the bird you can see a map of Australia and to the east, Lord Howe Island where the White Gallinule lived.

The White Gallinule stands on it’s island.

On the horizon is the shape of a distant ship (bringing men who will destroy the species within a few decades.
