You may have noticed that there’s very little new work being shown at the moment. The reason for this is simple: I’m writing a book.
It’s nothing fancy; a few hundred pages full of pretty pictures and the ramblings of a mad artist. I’ve called the book Self[other] and it’s simply a compilation of all my blog entries from 2011. In this digital age it seems strange to be changing a perfectly good electronic blog that everyone can read for free into a paper-bound item which costs money. But I’m not writing it for you.
I’m writing it for me.
I need to have tangibility to all my work.This blog is my sketchbook and as such I need to touch and feel the paper and make it mine. I’ve always had this problem. I’ve been almost thrown out of art galleries and museums due to my insistence at stroking the more textural items.
I’ll let you know when it’s finished.
