I have been an absurdist all of my life, in that I enjoy the juxtaposition of the bizarre and unexpected in the world around me. 

 

In the seventies, after leaving Leeds College of Art, I worked in absurd performances all over the country. I have been a comedy scriptwriter, performer, director, and educator and, over the past ten years have been manipulating ideas through found images. 

There is nothing complicated about my work. It has little meaning and has a silly absurdity at its core. 

Do not be fooled into thinking the work is facile and shallow. There is a serious motive in attempting to amuse and brighten an audience’s artistic experience and, in so doing, question the often over serious sobriety of contemporary artistic methodology.

I try to repurpose long forgotten, photographic memories and give them a new life and a new humourous history.

Also I do a bit of poetree and interventions to annoy people
