Happy 4th Birthday HGC

December 19, 2013

It’s been a long time between posts and even longer between making work.

After welcoming baby Imogen to the fray this year, life has been a never ending roller-coaster and time is non-existent.

Having said that, 2014 is a new year and I look forward to once again focussing on that which irks me as I work on a new series.

The world has changed a lot and with the impending demise of establishments such as the QCP (Thanks to the Campbell Newman regime) I am going to make work that transcends ‘photography’. Photography is maligned by the public and gallery systems alike for it’s lack of aura, something that I can appreciate, even if I don’t entirely concur with.

To me, art is art and it’s what you are looking at and consuming that is more important, than where you see it or how it is made.

The thought, not the process, is what makes art great. If it is great art, of course.

Anyway, as HolyGreenCow approached it’s 5th year of existence and no longer qualifies as an Emerging Artist, the time is now to at least think about making art. In between changing nappies, tantrums and everything else that makes parenthood so much fun…

Thank you for reading.
