Heckels Horse

Since 2013 Billy Childish and Edgeworth Johnstone 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 (below). Heckels Horse has been in three group shows: one at Pushkin House, one at Sun Pier House, and another in Russia. No solo shows.
In 2014 an art group was formed that included Billy 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.
