It's been exactly quite a while since my last 'post'. Various reasons for this, but mostly because I felt I was indulging in '2' many conversatrons and not focusing on my 'practice'. Now that my 'practice' is back in focus, I have regressed to illuminating my bonce with endlessly fascinating factoids regarding different synthetics affecting the performance of a new to 3 month old copa mundial. Also, 'french gray' should be re-named 'blatant green', as an artistic license in a diy store could lead to the inevitable de-robing of the cloak of conceptual talent that conceals the most ardent of 'arts cool' residents.
Get a 4b pencil and a wee bit of paper and construct some sort of rudimentary launching device to propel the graphite rod unit onto the 'paper'
and thus play the neo-artistic form of 'extreme markmaking' (ism), My mate terry did it for a group crit and he got a sterling grade.
Go round old studios you used to 'practice' in and look in drawers, for every ten drawers you look in you will find one important sketchbook. Its a feeble attempt to denote a certain 'process' to collecting inspiration but if deemed 'treasure hunt art' then tutors might find it exciting.
Enthusiasm is a difficult thing to come by sometimes. Especially when the clocks have stepped back an hour to allow evening football and your masking tapes run out. Luckily, I haven't yet fallen foul to a 'timetable' but alas honour this in a pre mass-productionism output of 'art'-work. As laid out in my telling CV I think I have two drawings, three scultpures, a half-finished painting and a deliberatley left at half-finish painting, but have yet to produce an obligatory video piece? Also, a 'text' piece. Painting a wall white is a strangely irritating venture, I'd recommend dimming the lights instead and a statement dealing an artistic verbose declaring that "mistakes and 'the unfinished' are an integral part of my ephemeral yet very definate in relation to time, studio practice", "and I'm also a wanker". Also, why call white paint white paint when pre off-white or negative black will do?
