New work : are we there yet ?

I'm on approaches to a two person show next week in a really interesting artist run space called Peppermint SHED in Suffolk UK.

I'm really excited about this show, I committed early on to making new work specially for it (why don't I keep my mouth shut?). It has turned out to be a lot of new painting, most of which is mostly ready.

I'm also showing new prints, hopefully in a new way. I'm getting tired of is putting my printmaking behind glass. Glass is too polite and too aloofing. It detaches the viewers - they window shop rather than really look. The process of making this feckin stuff is physical, messy, surprising, uncertain, tactile. Glass stops all that from getting to the viewer. It stops the work from carrying to them a record of a moment and a discovery. It just becomes a displayed product, a static object just like any other in the visual slurry we wade through every day. Working titles for this new work are : bookworks, boxworks, folders.

I'll report back if you can't make it to the show.
