Art is the proper task of life – Friedrich Nietzsche

Accidents and Gratification


In the run up to my next solo exhibition, I’m currently doing so cleaning and tidying so I can focus on my newer work. This often involves throwing out old work and materials, but most just rearranging and hoarding what I have.

While going through my studio space I found this piece of paper. It’s a printed image with an acrylic medium accidentally spilled on it. To most, this may not seem important or interesting, however this is exactly why I began my work with chance. I was cleaning my second year studio space at university, and I found a distorted and dirty piece of paper on the floor, covered in materials I’d been using over the past few months (as well as the odd foot print or two). This ultimately led to me look at overlooked and everyday processes, and I guess it’s just nice to reflect on that, and the fact that I still find my studio mess inspiring.
