A commentary on current work


Trickster: to play tricks or otherwise disobey normal rules and conventional behaviour.

Visual invention, imagination and humour are amongst many vital survival tools for artists. Sometimes these creative processes are reluctant to surface. What often works for me is to create another personality for short periods. I found this neglected and torn poster which I appropriated a few years ago. I signed it with the name of my alter ego Xavier Luz-Azulado.   The poster is located at Bristol Temple Meads station. Returning from the Frome Independent market on sunday 5th august I was delighted to see it was still there.
