‘Inhale with me’ – Grey Area Gallery Brighton [UK]

I (must) confess, I am an artist. I discover and leave behind, thoughts and things. I cannot always control what is released, and sometimes look as a stranger at my own work. Ok, then this must be me.

The artist-run space is unveilled; a moment in time and space to reconsider my practice without the baggage of institutions. The work as a whole did not exist before and will not exist again. The most valuable moments arise there. I am commited to, but also dependant upon these spaces, which are my ‘pedestal habitats’.

Of course my studio is important, but it is also sometimes a confusing place where different visions cross each other and entwine. Objects from ten years ago continue to scratch at me. So why do I keep those works when I do not actually like them? They must have some kind of value, but I still can’t tell what that is. Maybe I missed the meaning of those past objects and their moment is slowly fading from thought. My works play witness to those moments.
