A place to put things
AHHH! ARRR!.. ARRRRT!.. MY BRAIN.. ART.. HURTS!
I am a multi disciplined artist working primarily in a 2d visual format. Here are some things I've done; a little peek at the swirling, ceaseless, ideas maelstrom. If you will.
You are cordially invited to take a look.

This was an instillation I did recently at The Smiling motorbike (a squatted social centre in Stokes croft) as a response to the stop Hinkley campaign (the proposed nuclear sight not far from Bristol) along with a benefit gig.
I worked solidly through the day and into the evening in the front window. This became something of a live painting spectacle as the window display area was large and very visible on the main strip in Stokes Croft. So all through the day and into the night when the party started I had an audience, which if I'm honest I quite liked.
The two radio active suits sit around drinking radio active wine, trying to ignore the destruction around them and the nuclear blast going off in the distance.
There seems to be a lot of films about at the moment concerning future worlds and a general sense of doom and gloom as to this planet or more specifically our species fate. These are distressing times, though the future is not necessarily decided. Id like to think we will get our act together and do something about it but have a sinking feeling we Will just sit around with our fingers in our ears and let it all fall down around us...
