With so much effort going towards the promotion of an artist as brand competing through projections of (market) success and continuous creativity, I am happy to have an honest portrait of me and my creative practise.
This includes an element of struggle, insecurity and the inevitability of an unknown future.
Edward Baiduc has managed to capture the human that I am; in my North London studio, at the Royal Academy and within the nature I love and crave at the Walthamstow Wetlands Centre.
The winding path of the artist is not necessarily the easiest to traverse.
(I speak here for myself)
There are dizzying heights and unfathomable descents, such shifts in altitude often take place within an insanely short space in time.
I do love being in this creative way as an artist.
I am learning all the time about what is possible and also what may not be.
One thing I ask is that if you are in a position to financially support an artist please do so.
This may be in purchasing an artwork or buying them a coffee someday!
I wish to give thanks to all of you who have encouraged and supported me through good times and hard times... and the crazy mixture of both in the same moment!
