‘I draw buildings, particularly buildings that remind of me of times in my life and the objects and experiences I associate them with. These times are always tied to music and politics, like an Adam Curtis documentary I endeavour to make work like a collage of contexts.
Any aesthetic I use to create the image is an attempt to base the image in the era I associate it with. Basic colour schemes and the halftones resonate with the brutalist concrete landscapes, a modernist utopia. The idea of what happened lurks beneath, through the failure of our society turning them into a symbol of dystopia. Lord Anthony Jackets, Judge Dread comic books, Threads on the TV, The Smiths, New Order, My brothers Mullet and bad metal albums, Thatcher, The falklands, My Dads Renault and cords with Clarks shoes.
Getting older and wiser and listening to Bowies New Career in New Town and Jon Hopkins or some Mogwai and thinking back to Shoe gaze and my brothers record collection changing from Anthrax to The The Fall and Spacemen three via Pink Floyd then the Summer of Love then High School and not going to school but buying a ten deck and getting a bus into town. That’s where these works come from and more. There’s always something beautiful in boredom”.

In an interview with Alain Jouffroy in 1966, Godard explicitly summarized his use of blue-white-red and the significance he intended to give it: “I believe a little in nationalism, but in a nationalism of poetry, not at all political: I like that Delacroix is French and Beethoven is German…”. And “Do you believe in the soul of a people? ” asks Jouffroy.“I can’t express it that way because it sounds a bit too big, but it is a bit that.”
The imperfect and handmade look of the letterforms, the bad kerning, the large gaps between letters and words, the justified blocks of text, the awkwardly dotted capital I’s. Even when he used an existing typeface – like Antique Olive in ‘Week end’ (1967) – the letterforms look as if they were cut out with an Exacto knife.
