Short rant

Socially-expected voluntary-positivism doesn’t brush away justifiably felt anguish about the world, pursuing a life lived in a fragile cocoon of reverberated self-belief. Many who adamantly reject this assertion I find to be those who are also most likely to defiantly dismiss the evidence of the serious social and environmental issues of our age, even when you thrust them in their face. This isn’t a stance for the right to be miserable for the sake of it!; it’s an anger at a society that basically picks on people who are justifiably unhappy about the state of the world, by telling them that it’s something to do with their state of mind, basically telling them that they’re unwell, not the world.

Short rant over; now back to bigger things (hopefully).

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
