I am...
Je pense, donc je suis. I still am, I think?.
I am an Earthling. Laughing like a drain at everything, including my own trials and tribulations. Sometimes I even guffaw at other peoples interpretations of my life & work while meeting my own existential nightmares head on with a big fat belly laugh. No matter where I am I will only occupy the same volume of space.
I am always hoping for Peace in the world but regularly find myself being disappointed.
About my artwork
Exploring the realms of creative ineptitude from the anal-retentive to the cack-handed and in the process sometimes I try to take bad art to new lows. Looking for comedy in tragedy and the tragic in the comedic. Colliding Signs and Signifiers in a metaphorical accelerator in the hope of discovering new meanings in my work and ideas, often these works are produced conceptually, in series or in a narrative form, (I love a good story). I take nothing and everything seriously. I also like to explore, Naqö`yqatsi - Life as War, exploring the Civilised Violence that we see all around.
Life is a dichotomy. Humanity is a conundrum.

Interests
Some interests:
Restoring things, including things that have been destroyed or deleted (this may include some artistic license during the process of reconstruction and thus some changes may well be made to what the original may have looked or sounded like, including additions that where never present in the original).
Space hoppers as a form of everyday transport. Laughing at the wrong moments in movies when at the cinema. Pointing and laughing at politicians in public, (then walking away still laughing). Making up happy endings to Kafka's unfinished works. Making all sorts of artistic and subversive interventions in work or in public. Embracing serendipity and happenstance whenever these things present themselves. I enjoy new experiences and trying out new things. My main position is sitting, but sometimes I like to stand and I am also interested in working (painting, drawing and photography) whilst on a bouncy castle or trampette, I prefer a bouncy castle as it is a kind of grand statement in itself. I like dancing in public places as if I am alone and no one is watching. I also enjoy pulling silly faces in crowded places and watching peoples reactions (I also like watching Gurning Competitions). I enjoy music and live events but I also enjoy solitude and silence (silence being the canvas that music is painted upon)I am interested in art, music, films, literature, comic books. I'm also interested in watching and feeding the wild visitors in my garden. "A robin red breast in a cage puts all heaven in a rage"- W.Blake.
I also like a good joke. "Knock, Knock. . ."
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
The Atrocity Exhibition.
Yours?
and
these also entertain me, in ways that are not unrelated to each other:-

The Turner Prize.
Centre of the artworld:
my studio, nowhere and everywhere
