Well, as usual, no sales were made in the sale. Except, of course, for the outcomes I ordered for my own use. After all, I make this art primarily FOR ME. It remains just as suitable FOR YOU, should you so desire!
Four Chromaluxe die sublimation prints. Making the virtual real for my own collection and maybe to exhibit in 2020 – appropriate opportunity forthcoming.

Making positive use of the FOR SALE SIDE-EFFECT to trigger new perspectives, leading to new lines of enquiry and new outcomes.
The news (in this) is that the selling art process can be a huge creative drag. But, flipping that negative energy can lead to positive new directions.
As I said in my earlier post “the chance of the odd sale is really just a side-effect that comes with the space“. If any funds are generated these are ploughed back into making new enquiries and outcomes. My practice is mostly exhibited in the virtual space of the web. The very occasional real-world exhibition is more of an accident than a goal. If a connection made leads to a worthwhile venue, then so be it. Making a sale is not the goal either, this is why I describe my art as FOR ME. But, this doesn’t preclude it from being FOR YOU too.
A lot of effort has gone into creating and curating this space. I treat it as an online exhibition space. The chance of the odd sale is really just a side-effect that comes with the space. Every little helps though. I am more interested in how these different lines of enquiry sit together in the space, how I can introduce new work and cycle out those outcomes that have served their time. It never sits still for very long. Everything is transient.
As with any real world exhibition, there are many ways to view an online exhibition. Each viewer can create their own perspective. Here I have created a perspective focused upon WEEKDAYs only. This makes for an interesting panoramic record of (part of) the installation.
Of course, having filtered the exhibition once, it is possible to do so again. This time, I have focused on just the WEEKEND.
ALL of these views were created by taking screenshots on an iPad Pro tablet. Use a different device and you may well get a different perspective. Try viewing via a PC browser and you will see a different (wider) spaced layout.
The original installation can (as I write) be viewed via:
But, everything is transient.
