Sculptor

An Artists Life

For special occasions Mike likes to dress in all black or a white shirt and black pants , I will bring in his favourite jumper to morrow. Yes, Mike broke new ground in the art world and @ 24 years old he won The Blake Prize for Religious Work { called spiritual work now ] The Last Supper 1964 I did not know him then as I was still in school and 7 more major prizes in 8 years which saw his meteoric rise. MrJorn Utzon SOH presented the award and this modern work was front page in the newspapers and Mike received death threats which really spooked him and made him shy of press and publicity.Over the next 2 years his work will be in 4 major exhibitions and we are working on a publication of The Life and Work of Mike Kitching by Gavin Fry. Mike cut up a cedar table and Jesus, Judas and the apostles and made of aluminium circles and there is the crown of thorns in wire.
