A COVER UP OF THE PAST

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… Continue reading A COVER UP OF THE PAST
