Wake Up Artists !!!!!!!!!!!
I create conceptional artworks and more narrative pieces which I consider fairly approachable , they are not one dimensionable or intentionally obscure but do require some engagement by the viewer . I also like to lob in a bit of humour now and again , which might make galleries etc wonder if there is a cohesive intent running through the work , which there is .
I suppose because I want to communicate with other people and am not self obsessed / up myself , or have little interest in the art world itself and what ever style / approach is currently ” in “, plus I don’t exactly play the game > write reams of pretentious twaddle about the arts meaning / include all the art world buzz words as to the works cultural relevance , know the right people ( those with money ) , or produce graffiti art much of which is really lame , not to mention fake in terms of its so supposedly guerrilla credentials ; which is why I don’t seem to be making much headway in art competitions , exhibit much less frequently than I would like . Or perhaps need to come up with another solution !
When I chat to friends who are in in bands , not that it is easy for them to get “recognised” but they at least don’t need to become something that there not and can at get gigs , although not necessarily paid ones. Something that artists and musicians do have in common is a dependency on other people to market them , because it doesn’t matter how good or bad your work is , if either the people , or “the” people haven’t heard of you then the money will not be coming in , unless you know differently ???? Any suggestions ??????
I was looking on youtube for the weird film the Singing Ringing Tree 1957 that used to scare children in the past , but unexpectedly came across this video clip of a physical singing ringing tree , out on the moors of deepest , darkest Burnley.
I’v never had a reason to go to Burnley but now i do !
This is a representation of my 2,500 piece wooden sculpture which is looking for a exhibition opportunity !
