Official Opening 6-8pm Thursday March 23 2023

“All my work has over the years in one way or another been collaged, cut and pasted, made of remnants & collections. Maybe a reflection of my artistic upbringing & influences or of the over informed, over influenced age we find ourselves in. We live day to day, apart from trying to process our own thoughts & feelings, in a surf of information, influence & inspiration. The influx is overwhelming and hard to avoid. Art has come to reference itself endlessly, sometimes this is all it does. Music is full of sample heavy construction, film, writing etc. we are all collaging in one way or another from the world around us or the world that has been.
Part of the intrigue & interest of work now is to find its source material. As a clearer meaning of a work may be found in its ingredient rather than its outcome.
These pictures are collaged, smashed collided in thematics, meaning, stories, imagery then turned upside down, sideways, back to front, inside out, shaken, eroded, erased, inverted – any which way in order to try obfuscate, avoid or transform the meaning still on display. Perhaps a reflection of not wanting to again confront the ideas and thoughts collected over the past few years – which have been anything but pleasant. Or trying to find something more positive among it. Something akin to a homeopathic remedy, where the cure is found within the cause.”
