Stuff I’ve been up to.

Recently my blog has been more of a memoir of life lessons, and my new found perspective via an unfortunate and debilitating health thing going on with me that I can’t seem to shake. Which means i’ve barely posted what I’ve been working on. So here’s  a bunch of stuff I’ve been up to: House parties,Continue reading “Stuff I’ve been up to.”

This post is not on what I’m doing, but more questioning what we’re doing in art in general. And I don’t mean we as in the 10 artists, but every single artistContinue reading “The Democratisation of the Art-World. Questions….”
