2021

An exhibition and on-line fundraiser of 300 drawings on paper in which I am showing a drawing associated with a VR work I made with Keith Sargent called Careless. I am also talking on 15th June at 6pm -7pm with Alvaro Barrington Jade Montserrat and Herdeep Pandhal about this drawing and drawing in general

My work Care(less), made with Keith Sargent, is concerned with death but specifically in relation to ageism and an easy acceptance that the elderly have served their term. This carelessness is never more evident than in the current pandemic where ageism is astoundingly...

 A series of collaged drawings/paintings and digital images made on paper. The works are 3D and have elements on the exterior of the frames,. They usually take an expended dimenttion for Richard Dadd's Fairy Fellers Master Stroke (approx h.79 x w.56.6cm d.15cm).

Almost twenty years ago, a set of events unfolded which I could believe are the origin of these drawings/paintings. A talented art student whom I taught was diagnosed with the condition of schizophrenia; then I had by chance discovered a book, "Lenz" by Georg Büchner, on a shelf in a house I...

2020

A postal project in which I sent a DVD of a film of robins nesting in my shed to 50 people (30 editioned).

 

Part of an essay inspired by the robins.

[...]Amongst all this birds nested in our shed – robins. I filmed them watching a fly with avid desire (their hunger a desire to merge). A robin had come into my studio several times before the nesting, the sound of her wings alerting me to the fact as she flitted in, perching on an easel and quizzically turning her head to inspect me. I freely admit to anthropomorphism and saw her gestures as an...

Nowhere Less Now3 [Flying Saucer] | 26th September - 26th December

Materials: 3 synchronised monitors, 5.1 surround sound, mylar curtain, 6 geometric forms, folded paper, seating and carpet.

You enter a building called the Flying Saucer, which originally stood on the edge of  an old army camp, but now the city engulfs it. It is hot outside but the building is cooled and you feel the relief from the opressive heat as you go inside. A silver curtain shimmers in the wake of the air conditioning.. You pass through this mylar curtain (a material used in space travel) and there are luminous loungers in a 70's style, behind which a...

Super(seed)ed/an extension of Care(less) | 1st April - 31st March

100 packets of sunflower seeds were posted to recipients across Europe, the majority being in the UK and Ireland, some seeds were posted to those who responded to a Facebook posting requesting that I send them the seeds if they send me an address. The action was inspired by the death of my father who had given me sunflowers to grow. After I lost him I planted 100 sunflowers both tall and short in our garden. I took the policy that every seed that germinated should survive. It was a cathartic exercise that I wanted to share - this year the seeds of my father's memorial falls into the...

Materials: a video PAL projection with surround sound and subwoofer, 2 video works for monitors with headphones,  2 plinths and a bench (all videos are screened together and looped). The films are housed in a fabric tent on a wooden structure with a fabric screen on a wooden frame.

Extramission 2 (The projected film inside the tent) 15 minutes

The larger projected  film in the installation covers Seer’s attempts to...

Materials: two robots, surround sound system, radio headphones, 3 synchronized media players, 3 projectors and a programmed light, 22 framed drawings and paper installations

The viewer enters the space guided by an invigilator who shows the way to a high bench with a torch. It is ideal to come and go at the point of  start up but the robots will continually loop every 25 minutes and begin again. The narrative is non-linear but it makes sense not to disturb the environment with many comings and goings of viewers. The robots are synchronised and carry screens - they...

Materials:  VR Headsets with headphones, wall paintings, shadow lamps, medical swivel stools, 6 drawings and sunflower heads.

You enter a low lit spac,e either in a castle dungeon in Lincoln, a deconsecrated church in Brighton or in a hidden room in Birmigham. Inside these rooms there is a shadow play of sihouettes that are blown around the walls, looming and shrinking like a phatasmagoria or Plato's cave. Some medical swivellig stools are placed around an abtract geometric form. The viewers occupy these stools and are immersed in a 360 world that leads them...

Care(less) | Fabrica, Brighton | 5th October - 24th November

Materials:  VR Headsets with headphones, wall paintings, shadow lamps, medical swivel stools, 6 drawings and sunflower heads.

This work addresses hallucination and embodied viewing in relation to our current social and economic constructs regarding attitudes to the elderly and social care in Britain. It is also concerned with the hallucinatory condition of filmic mediums (here specifically Virtual Reality) which feel closer to how the mind itself works rather than how this is conveyed in the more historic film mediums. Alongside the medium itself the work questions the...
