hit and run.
In the past one and half year of work/discussion/rejection/progression, I have found that formal aspects of art making have become redundant to my core concept for the moment. I have seriously deliberated on the execution stage of my ideas and in this process have continued to scrap many more trivialities attached to my work. Mark-making and text however still feature as the strongest elements of my work and it is through these that I feel that I’m able to come closest to the visualization of my concept.
Much of my work has been labeled or contextualized in ‘public’ art even though I have restrained from making any of the pieces completely public.
The work is now finally interacting with the ‘public’ but under terms and conditions that suit my work and my sensibility. I have chosen people, names and addresses and started a one-sided dialogue with no real chance for response – as yet. Further stages may or may not engage the audience in a two-way dialogue – it all depends on how the idea evolves.
