Saw the video today: The Man in the Hat. I loved it. Made the image with a snap from the TV screen. I think I like it because I have been to his gallery a few times. I’ve met Peter. I would love him to sell my prints!
Reading Dick Frizzell and learning about “new Image”, 1978 Whitney moment. Easy to see the influence in various places, do I see it in Bill Hammond?
I can see some of that in my work occasionally, but mostly that I am NOT “New Image” even though I like comics and stories and “rough expressionism”. I am too interested in shape, colour and texture.
There is is something. A realisation about what I do, well, don’t do. Most of the time I just have no idea. Thinking again about the comments from Peter McLeavey on my work (see here) that I need to find who I am etc… I am many things! PolyPsycho digital printmaker.
