” I keep on regardless, because the notion is as inherently terrifying and nihilistic as the alternative…”
There’s a really nice interview I did with Coma music magazine recently, in which I talk about Art, Bowie, Ghost haunting’s, my top five current musical picks and what I would do in the event of a Zombie apocalypse, and you can read it from the link below.
Way back in September 2014, I unleashed a 24 piece series that I had been working on every day for the better part of two years. Purgatorium was my epic judgement day opus-raging at the sky and shaking a fist, framing the kind of question that asks ‘is anybody fucking listening?’. Judging from the single but favorable review I got at the time, the answer came back resoundingly that nobody really was-certainly all the usual suspects couldn’t give a flying fuck.
In the echo chamber since the work vacated the walls, the pieces have sat unseen by anyone, smouldering in some crate like the Lost Ark in Raiders one imagines.
That is until now, because Purgatorium is getting a second outing, and alongside the work of the extraordinary Jeff Christensen, can be seen under the new banner of Dreamscapes at Bash Fine Arts new location in Las Vegas. Beneath the black pyramid of Luxor I can think of no better Babylon for the Phoenix to be reborn.
Dreamscapes runs through May 21st-June 25th. Opening Reception Saturday, May 28th 6-10pm
