Creative Global Network for the Visual Arts

Have you seen these paintings and works of art by Kane Cunningham & Mik Godley - stolen in the early hours of today - Tuesday 22nd March 2011 - from Kane's "House" studio, Knipe Point, Scarborough. This costitutes Kanes entire collection of paintings for his "House" project and my entire collection of Silesian Portraits. If you have any information please contact mikgodley@yahoo.co.uk

Please spread the word quickly - I'm hoping if lots of people hear about it, then the paintings will turn up dumped somewhere, before they get trashed or burnt or something - PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you! Thank you!

Yorkshire Post

£100,000 art haul returned

A CONTROVERSIAL Scarborough artist whose cliff-top studio was recently ransacked by thieves, has announced he has had the £100,000 haul of stolen paintings mysteriously returned to him.

Kane Cunnigham, a 49-year-old lecturer at the Yorkshire Coast College, reported the haul of 40 paintings stolen from his studio at Knipe Point, near Scarborough, nearly two months ago. At the time, Mr Cunningham described the theft, which included his own works as well as 28 paintings by a friend Mik Godley, as exciting, saying: “There is a kind of creativity in the act.”

Now the stolen paintings have been returned to Mr Cunnigham on a low loader truck in broad daylight by a mystery unnamed intermediary.

The go-between had apparently managed to locate the works and brought them all back before they were shipped abroad.

Mr Cunningham bought the studio bungalow at Knipe Point for £3,000, paying for it on his credit card, because it is in danger of landslips and plans to fill it with cameras to record its last moments.

Neighbours have objected that publicity for the project has devalued their houses – most of which are in no immediate danger.

But Mr Cunningham said he did not think that had anything to do with the theft.

Not yet Izolda, but who knows what might happen, eh?

Well,  now you are famous ;-)

You too Izolda?!! Is this more common than we think? I can't see any sense in stealing Kane's and my paintings - we're not famous - it's just crazy!

Holy crap!

I am sorry to hear that, Mik. It happened to me too, so I can imagine how you feel.

The Guardian was a very good idea.  

Take care,

Hoping for the best.
