Short Reflections on ‘Noises From The Wilderness’

Thanks a lot to SW1-Hunter, Gav Roberts, Liz Ferrets and Kevin Titterton for playing at our exhibition last night. I’m not one for overstating things, but the atmosphere there last night was truly something special, with the sounds/words and paintings/drawings all playing off one another. There were certain points in the poet’s’ most pleading moments against the unnecessary destruction being dealt out in the world today, when there words seem to run on the compositions of my and John Wilkinson’s landscapes. SW1 Hunter, as always (in his many different acts I’ve seen over the years) was amazing, and seemed to be perfectly located in the room behind the specific works dealing most with the noise of life within the cyberspacial frenzy of these out of joint times – as, for me, in this performance it seemed to somehow mimic the infinite chatterings of this age, if those chatterings were to be emptied of their content into one body of noise. My only regret is that I didn’t manage to get photographs of all the performances, for which I apologise.

But here are links to all performers involved last night.

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.
