Artist Statement ( New work start in sep 2010)

My work is an investigation into the role of the Artist in society and in particular relationship between art work and what an Artist need to sustain him/herself.
To explore this I approach people in areas of work not usually associated with art, for example; farmers, and offer to produce artwork in exchange for food.
This enables me to;
-   Connect and make likes with non art people
-   Learn about different people.
-   Earn food to sustain me for my work.

For doing this I hoppe to;

-   Help the farmer to look at himself, his work environment differently.

I so doing this help’s my art to become useful and part of life rather than simply feed into the gallery/ artist as superstar culture.
