I have had a wee bit of a nightmare with sign in/out account names deciding to change themselves.
I have because of this begun an alternative Blog to replace this (which I thought was only ever now going to act as a past archive).
Start to follow the new blog and allow yourself to have more of an open discussion about art as well as invite me to answer questions about my own work and exchange insight.
There will also be a new and complete website coming soon to help along generating awareness for the work I do.

This issues front cover artist is Manchester based artist David Mackintosh and with art works from many more North West based artists.
A now bi-monthly zine BRUCE has seen great success in Preston over the last 10 months, which is continuing to offer opportunity for independant artists and event to gain a level of recognition. The zine is now going regional with distribution not just in Preston anymore. New venues will include A Foundation Liverpool and Castlefield Gallery, Manchester.
We are very excited about the future of BRUCE and offer to any creative to send us imagery or articles of events and activites happening near you and or beyond.
Send these to firstname.lastname@example.org and you could feature in an upcoming issue of the zine and have your work seen by an ecclectic and widespread audience.

process within my work. Looking at the emalgamation and construction of material
in relation to both itself and also the environment in which it is presented.
The work adorns the adjacent wall to my studio in which countless 'teabreaks'
The used bags reference the consumption of a single product within a single
The fresh bags explore the relationship between old and new alongside
creating narratives concerned with inevitability of change.
The metal has been taken from laundry baskets to further make oblique
references to the home/work space and the notion of cleanliness and throw away
culture being on our doorstep.
The addition of matching saved corks suggest a cotinuation of a story as
perhaps day moves to night and aspirations change from one consumeable product
