About my artwork
The quest is essential, the doorway is key and the experience is waiting. The artist as a pilgrim, as an explorer. The romantic hero cast against his chosen landscape begins to perform a task of a search inside themselves for a deeper meaning. A formless God, unachievable dreams and unrequited love, the pilgrim chases his desire although it always remains one step away.

It is the use of disparity and representation which develops a gap, somewhere between the work and the viewer or betwixt elements within the work which creates space and disorientation – an opportunity for experience. The crossing of the threshold into liminality, the gap between the representation and what it represents, the opportunistic doorway all combine to create the circumstances of the sublime; it is the viewers willingness to explore the space that completes the work. The gap between religion and faith, the space between the universe and humanity, the gradual merging of country and city and the desire to capture the sun.

My work is often captured in the moment before being represented. Video and photography provide an instant way to capture a moment, and voiceover allows for a disparate element to be introduced in order to exploit space for the viewer to inhabit and allow their own preconceptions to make connections and interpretations of what is represented.

Hey,
I often wonder about the place of music in sound art and art. as a listener, when i'm attentive, i percieve many sounds as they occur naturally, as music. quite complex textures and polyphony can arise out of the background. I think Cage framed this for us in formal music contexts.
if the intention is to arrange, mix, compose, edit, improvise, play, spark, sound/music that moves through time -- where and how can this kind of temporal activity fit? I don't think it is just a matter of finding the right physical space, although that's important too. How do music and art interact? I'm interested in bringing music as well as sound into installation. (i've played in all sorts of places - informal, formal, environmental, galleries and my compositions have been performed in auditoriums etc. but i'm interested in spatialising performers as well as sound for multi-channel environments). And then there's visual music. I really liked your paintings - I got immediately that there was movement, rhythm in there..

Hey, has there been much discussion action in the Sonic Artist group? i'm also interested in where music and art cross. perception of music vs. sound, sound vs. noise etc.

Hi Dan
I'd like to invite you to my forthcoming show at the Goldfactory Research Space, which is at Egerton Studios, Oldknows Building, St Anns Hill on Thursday the 24th of April from 6 till 9pm.

I've recently re-built the space there, so this show will unveil the new gallery/research space, and we hope it will be an exciting venue in Nottingham for artists to have the freedom to experiment with their practice.

My work will include recent paintings, videos and music, the idea being that all three media have cross pollinated with each other, creating a cacophony of happy/sad, brown earthy English/ vibrant kitsch Mexican, sights and sounds.

There'll be refreshments of tapas and beer and bring as many people as you like, the more the merrier.

Hope to see you then.
