Useful Art Tools

All artists have to provide rationale to explain, backup and promote their work, which in the main, however “intellectual” it may be, is primarily an experience of the senses rather than the written word.

In modern art particularly, this leads to some fairly difficult to grasp language, (cynics would say, deliberately obscure writing) which sometimes seem entirely unconnected to the work being described. Even the most celebrated works and movements of the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries have had their incomprehensible moments.

With this in mind, the Arty Bollocks Generator was constructed in order to assist the lost and of course, to poke fun at pomposity

 Artist Statement

My work explores the relationship between the Military-Industrial Complex and copycat violence.

With influences as diverse as Blake and Andy Warhol, new combinations are crafted from both explicit and implicit narratives.

Ever since I was a postgraduate I have been fascinated by the traditional understanding of the zeitgeist. What starts out as hope soon becomes finessed into a cacophony of lust, leaving only a sense of unreality and the unlikelihood of a new order.

As wavering phenomena become reconfigured through studious and diverse practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the darkness of our condition.
