Who I like this week:
Lucy McKenzie :
Extremely impressive work on counter narrative using architectural and design based practice, very similar to CSM’s aims. I appreciated her rejection of a commission for a museum that won’t show the work. It actually inspired me to submit a design for a mural that I would have been too nervous to otherwise, I was rejected, and just as Lucy says in the above interview, I was proud of it. I was initially drawn to her work of a table supporting in the works and personal artefacts of famous and renowned pedophiles. Background in music and punk, traveled to Berlin and to Munich. Self respect of an artist, she wears the white coat of her profession.
Other influences :womens hour tory mp describing her experience being slapped by a senior member of the conservative party and disappearance of tennis champion. Red hot chili peppers, wasteman. The mad crush at astroworld, the parallel between it and the way I see humans stepping over one another and abusing drugs.
What I have created this week:
A painting titled ‘blind dreamer’ is nearly finished, as is a black and white acrylic piece of a boat. NY commissions on their way to being done.

First attempt at film editing for this project was rather tricky…but to have something to show at least I can upload this:
Worked with X again to re-record and got Better work but more footage to sift through. Very happy with the result and can definitely do much better.
Also noted that since late 2019 i have filled 10 sketchbooks and painted hundreds of paintings. Extremely proud of this.
