Reflections on 2016, so far

It’s been a bit of a weird year, and states of mind have conspired to bring the very worst in me quite a few times. But I feel I’ve been as on the ball with the production of new art to say the least. Most work has gone towards two exhibitions ‘Under Digital Rain‘ (curated by John Wright) and ‘Fighting For Crumbs  (Art in the Shadow of Neoliberal Britain)‘. I feel these exhibitions are the outcome of focuses  (in and out of all parts of life) that have taken up my past 5/6 years. I’ve been saying this for most exhibitions for a couple of years. But with these 2 shows I feel I’ve actually started to get it together properly – with the help of fellow artists and philosophical companions. Although I am working on a project with John Wright, and Dave Jarvis, called The Retro Bar at The End of The Universe, right now I’ve been transmitting far too much, and now to start to doing some receiving, listening to what people have to say in the our post-Brexit UK.
