    Bloomberg SPACE, 2012

    Five Landscape Paintings are institutionally shared through Bloomberg's glass gallery walls. They depict scenes from a specific London suburb where the artist has just bought a flat. A decorative form of collateral to be harvested, they are seen to inform wider economies. Specifically the Brockley Property Market. Making visible ways public information or display might become subverted. In the interests of of private or even institutional wealth extraction.

    3236RLS/Gallery Le Bourgeois, 2018

    I think if you're a painter
    In London now and
    You want to be serious
    You have to accept
    You're working in a desert and
    You have to address
    The culture of your own work
    Starting from zero.
    And you have to actively repel
    And be antagonistic all the time
    To these consoling illusions of community
    Which are really no different
    To propaganda
    Or 'We Are City Island'
    Advertorial column inches.
    So maybe I'm painting
    OBEY paintings since 2009
    Because it makes me feel artistic to paint
    OBEY paintings since 2009.
    Not because I have an urge in my blood to paint OBEY paintings since 2009.
    Not because it's part of my cultural community to paint OBEY paintings since 2009.
    And maybe it feels avant-garde
    To exhibit them
    Inside a Mark E Smith tribute foam party
    Inside an emerging project space
    Inside Catford (but not Lambeth, no no no)
    Inside London when
    The entire social franchise is saying
    You are not real
    You are not the artist
    That Shepard Fairey was

    Lewisham Art House, 2016

    If your role when you hove no power is to make souvenirs of your culture for commercial use then you are doing what the Government says artists do. So maybe I'm painting JAZZ paintings because it makes me feel artistic to paint paintings about JAZZ. Not because I have an urge in my blood to paint paintings about JAZZ. Not because it's part of my cultural community To paint JAZZ paintings.

    Turner Contemporary, 2015

    Not Not Fireworks is a Land Art initiative about exceeding ironic economies of attention.
    Substantiating single entendre principles.
    Risking the disapproval of collectivised yuppsters.
    Or those that want to be like collectivised yuppsters.
    And art persons afraid of gaze or ridicule.
    It has been inspired by the oppressive nature of the too successful artist.
    By this I mean the conferred ability to critique a question whilst tacitly avoiding its content.
    Like using the same groovy technique to expose the enemy as insulate yourself.
    Colonial criticality.
    The tyranny of "COOL".
    Visual aids for gentrifiers.
    Irony institutionalised.
    And other simultaneous things.
