Vincent J Prince's Five Things.

Written by Lazy Gramophone on Wednesday the 10th of April 2013

Five Things is a series of short journal posts introducing each of the writers and artists involved in our up-coming Time project.

Since the project's inception, the idea has been to create an environment where independent writers and artists could come together in order to share their work. The result of this endeavour is a collection of stories, images and poems based around the theme of time, its pages placing particular focus upon the relationship between words and pictures. By sharing in this way we hope to inspire each other as well as those around us, to draw a diverse audience and so help to illuminate the work of alternative artists and writers everywhere.

Five Things that Inspire Me.

I always find that pinning down my particular influences and inspirations is quite difficult. I'm sure that many other folk would agree that their work contains hints and reference to countless influences, many of which might be instilled in their work on a subconscious level. Many of the subjects, and particularly the interactions between characters in my stuff aren't consciously influenced by art, but rather by the mundane. My writing invariably tends to gravitate towards themes of Yorkshire and the way its folk interact. As the common adage goes, 'there's nowt as queer as folk'. In light of this:

1: Yorkshire.
2: Yorkshire folk.
3: The first artistic inspiration that springs to mind would have to be the films of Mike Leigh: the understated comedic tragedy of everyday life in such as Nuts in May, and Abigail's Party, absolutely cracks me up.
4: Joe Orton. I love old Joe's plays, much for the same reasons as I love Mike Leigh's films. I keep lending his complete works to folk, and they keep saying I'm gay - figuratively and literally. I'm pretty sure I'm only figuratively gay, but I don't mind either way; it's worth it for Orton.
