“The palest ink is better than the best memory” (Chinese Proverb)

Objects, words and images can take you back to forgotten moments and places and they can allow new memories to be created. The process of recording a memory through an artwork, allows the viewer a tangible insight into the personal history the artist is creating.

“Inspiration comes of working everyday” - Charles Baudelaire

For those who are not fortunate enough to be paid for the fruits of their labour the pursuit of Art has always been hampered with the obligation to work. To make a living can be stifling; often the balance between the 9-5 and the artistic career can be an awkward and problematic one, time restrictions, heady conclusions and illogical decisions are all deciding factors. Furthermore a level of compromise frequently overshadows practice and the ability to maintain integrity is challenged.

This show features work that challenges these problems; the work approaches alternative routes of production and fabrication and questions the ability to integrate ones personal practice within the confines of a ‘working’ environment.
