It’s been a while since I’ve had an epiphany, but change is definitely in the air. A few months back the combination of having TOO MUCH OF MY OWN ART and having ready access to left-over spray-paints and gloss paint (that was being chucked out from Damien Hirst’s studio) provoked me to start tossing the unwanted paint onto the unwanted art.
It has taken a while before realising what I was doing – and I’m now full steam ahead, creating a collection of about 50 new art works. I’ve defaced detailed portraits, landscape of Spain, political art and still-lives. They are all getting the same treatment.
When I’m done, I’m not even sure that I will exhibit them. I might set fire to them, but preferably both. That’s where the epiphany bit comes in…hopefully I will be in a great place to start afresh with some new work that is already growing in my mind’s eye.
