A new chapter begins in which I play a new character. I know that here, I am supposed to write my ‘Artist’s statement’. Truth is I don’t really have the words or maybe even the inclination. Somewhere along the way I got caught up in doing thing’s for other people to make them happy and pushed myself aside. Until now I’d been of the opinion that if they are all happy then I am…and I was!!! Then I woke up one day and my partner told me my services were no longer required that ‘he could not be himself around me’ (a text message in work). I later discovered he’s a Sociopath and they are never themselves around anyone. The same week my boss gave my contract to a much younger less experienced person that suited the budget more. From there my life unravelled and its still unravelling and I’m just letting it go. It feels quite liberating to give society the bird after such a long period of working hard and towing the line. So I will create art works and play music and see what happens! Really there’s nothing else I can do.
