July 15, 2012 § 1 Comment

I have  been selected  for this year Deptford X  Fringe Festival 2012 .

Pursuit of the  real, is  a celebration and development in painting and text of the classic Ladybird children’s books from the 1960s and 1970s with their simple stories of domestic  routine, and of shopping in sunny high streets where kindly, silver-haired shopkeepers wrapped everything in  brown paper, and mummy wore  gloves.The intention is to critically subvert, support and develop contemporary visual debates.
This new  work  in  progress,  interrogate  the notions of  power, representation, belonging   and cultural differences in today society.
Presented  at  The Deptford Lounge,  9 Giffin Street.
