  • I like the idea of re-purposing things to make drawings. A few years ago i used the inside covers of cloth-bound books which would otherwise have been thrown away. But i realise i haven’t explored palimpsest opportunities more thoroughly, despite having a plans chest drawer full of old newspapers and letters (note to self - do this!). The drawing shown above though, is at least made on some vintage greaseproof paper from the 1930’s - found in the drawer of an old dresser when an elderly relative died. It was a surprisingly pleasing surface to work with!

This drawing will be shown as part of a solo presentation, ‘Precarious Structures’ with @arushagallery @drawartfairlondon to be held @saatchi_gallery London 15th -19th May (open to the public from 17th)

  • Sometimes i set out with an idea i want to try out, sometimes i just start by putting pencil to paper and seeing where it goes. This is one of those. I launch from my source material, but no preconceptions, no agenda, no real thinking - just playing. (Image shown is cropped)

All my recent drawings will be exhibited in a solo presentation, ‘Precarious Structures’ with @arushagallery @drawartfairlondon to be held @saatchi_gallery London 15th -19th May (open to the public from 17th)

  • ♻️ We are celebrating #GlobalRecyclingDay with our current installation by Jean-François Boclé ‘Everything Must Go’, 2014. 🌍 The piece features a sea of 97,000 blue polythlene plastic bags, now synonymous with current aims to ban #singleuseplastic. Boclé originally created the piece as a quasi-memorial to lives lost at sea during the transatlantic slave trade, air inflating the bags to symbolise the priceless commodity that is life itself. 🌎

Open 10am – 6pm. Admission free.

  • I was commenting today about how i used to keep an ideas notebook but none of them ever materialised because, although they were interesting, they were so far outside my practise, they just seemed ‘alien’.
Ideas which develop directly from process seem more true to my ‘voice’. That’s why i have been finding these fragments of drawings i have been making so useful - relatively speedy records of ideas and small enough to try new things without censoring - like this stitched piece!

  • Earth has experienced up to ten mass extinction events. Nearly all have been caused by an imbalance between oxygen and carbon dioxide: too much oxygen and things get cold; too much carbon dioxide and things get too hot. In an age where excess carbon dioxide is fuelling climate change, the act of a simple breath can engage us with this cycle in a uniquely intimate way, and in doing so help us reflect on our dependence and responsibility to the Earthlings we share the planet with.

It may also re-engage us to the 2700 litres of oxygen laced blood that circulates our body each day - and to the indebtedness we owe to the fallen autumnal leaf.

Come and join us in this journey at Saatchi Gallery, London
7th December - 20th January

Tickets available now  OceanOfAir.com / link in bio

The installation created In collaboration with Natan Sinigaglia natansinigaglia and Mileece I'anson milee.ce

  • “사랑은 삶의 모든 양상을 담고 있는 것이다”  Robert Indiana

디지털 시대 세상을 보는 창이 된 휴대용 컴퓨터(laptop)의 화면을 모티브로 2018년 시작해 현재 진행중인 love- 195 시리즈는 지구 어느 곳에나 존재하는 '사랑'을 문자 Love로 각 나라 국가관에 맞추어 다양한 색으로 상징화 시키는 작업으로서로 연결된 듯 단절된 이상(理想)을 의미하고 있습니다

총 195개 캔버스를 사람으로 하여금 가장 아름다운 느낌을 주는 황금비율(1: 1.618)로 설치될 계획이다
