Jesus Wept

Apparently a wooden carrot would have been OK, but a real carrot is offensive.

Have a good Xmas

End of Residency Preview

During the last 3 weeks I have been Artist in Residence at 25 Stratford Grove, Newcastle. My residency will end on Thursday 18 June. You are invited to come and see the work and enjoy a glass of wine.

I have found the experience extremely valuable as it has forced me to work in a completely different way than I am used to.

Dear Friend,

I am offering you the chance to contribute to the creative process of a work of art and to own a copy of said work. You may know that I have recently been making a series of self-portraits called Consumed, where my head is covered with plastic bags. If not here is an example:

I have continued to make these self-portraits but have added a slight twist. In the new series of images all the clothes I wear have been purchased from a charity shop and the bag that they came in is worn on my head. The name of the shop, its location and how much the garments cost me determine the title of each piece. For example: The Children's Society, Blandford Street, Sunderland, £3-98 (2009)

What I would like you to do is go to a charity shop and buy a shirt and tie; you may also purchase a jacket, sweater or any other items you like as an optional extra, and donate them to me. I will make a self-portrait wearing the clothes with the bag they were handed to you in. This will continue the theme of charity by you donating clothes to me to make the work and will give the images much more variety. In return for your efforts I will give you a signed print of the self-portrait and credit you in the title of the piece.

If you decide to take part I will need:
1 shirt (any size)
1 tie
Plastic bag
Receipt stating how much the garments cost Additional clothes from the charity shop at your discretion

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me via email . To see more examples of my work please see my website

I look forward to hearing from you and (if you decide to take part) seeing what you find at the charity shop.
