A website for the paintings Billy Childish and I have done together is in development, and will be at https://www.heckelshorse.com/.

For now, there are a few on the Heckel’s Horse Instagram.

We used to be called Childish Edgeworth. Some of our paintings were in a 2014 show at Pushkin House, called Our Friend Larionov.

About Heckels Horse:
Since winter 2013, Billy Childish and Edgeworth have been making collaborative paintings together, at Billy’s studio in Chatham Dockyards. The partnership’s been called Heckels Horse. So far, writing in December 2019, Heckels Horse has made over 100 oil paintings. The vast majority are either 6ft x 5ft, or 6ft x 4ft, on deep edge linen canvas. Heckels Horse has itself collaborated with Harry Adams on a painting, after Larionov, called The Turk. Heckels Horse has been in three group shows: one in Pushkin House, another at Sun Pier House, and another in Russia. No solo shows.
Confusingly, in 2014, an art group was formed that included Billy Childish and Edgeworth, amongst others, that was also called Heckels Horse. This Heckels Horse has nothing to do with the Heckels Horse that is the partnership between Billy and Edgeworth.
