Art Drop, March 12th, 2017

Leaves left and that New Year resolution not to art drop finally broken. The first art drop since December 31st happened yesterday, leaves left in the Spring light, I did say I would never do it again.  Two pieces were left hanging on a wall and a fence, both in Islington, hanging there waiting to be taken should someone wish to, two pieces painted on some found recycled wood and left hanging in North London, two of the 70 pieces brought to a conclusion so far in the first 70 days of 2017 as the notion of a painting brought to a conclusion on every single day of 2017.  And now the resolution has been broken I imagine there will be more carefully placed “drops” as the spring kicks in, there is a certain pleasure in painting on something picked up off the street or found in a skip and putting it back out there…

#ArtDrop, June 2016

Yesterday’s #ArtDrop piece was one of the 43 pieces painted on wood during the Debaser show at BSMT Space earlier this year. A Sometimes They Have Thorns piece painted on a found piece of wood and left hanging on a wall over in Hackney Wick yesterday afternoon. Left there for someone to take should they wish to, all about painting on something that has been thrown away, something no longer wanted and heading for landfill, something painted on in the hope that it will now be wanted again. I expect there will be a daily art drop this coming week in the run up to the Art Car Boot Fair…
