John Stezaker’s new show at The Approach looks like essential viewing for me. His return to making silkscreens chimes with my own desire to find new directions for my Redacted Comics / Black Works series. The isolation of a single element emerging from black is a technique that we are exploring simultaneously. Really looking forward to seeing these works tomorrow.

‘Found and staged images are subject to intense re-workings through an arbitrary combination of digital manipulation, collage and a diversity of printing processes’
I’ll write up my recent studio work soon, but Clunie Reid’s video collage work chimes with my recent work manipulating and collaging found imagery, then applying paint to further disrupt the image and it’s meaning.
