The concepts within this work ‘celebrate’ the following;

  • The appeal of consuming
  • The lure of bargains and never to be beaten value
  • The sharing of purchase offers and information  - how often we share and exchange knowledge of where, when, how much at a grass roots level
  • The speed at which images within a multi-cultural urban space change and entice with their simplistic yet highly effective symbols, garish colours and their seductive combinations which have a beauty all their own.
  • Stickers and signs which offer the promise of bargains and value open to all as an alternative to the ‘what we cant have or afford’
  • Art made from the images around us, which is accessible to all because it celebrates these very things be seen as an antidote to the oppressive nature of the speed of change in imagery within an urban environment which attempts to create an atmosphere where ‘social change is replaced by a change in images’?
  • The power of our choice to celebrate our community and the visuals which surround us by making art!

Buy One, Get One  Free                                                         2013

Initial proposal for developing project based on the idea that flyers, posters and postcards are the art of the visitor the inhabitant and a community in flux and with potential for the future!

Outlined below is an initial set of ideas for variations on a theme to be developed by September.

The concepts within this work ‘celebrate’ the following;

·      The appeal of consuming

·      The lure of bargains and never to be beaten value

·      The sharing of purchase offers and information  - how often we share and exchange knowledge of where, when, how much at a grass roots level

·      The speed at which images within a multi-cultural urban space change and entice with their simplistic yet highly effective symbols, garish colours and their seductive combinations which have a beauty all their own.

·      Stickers and signs which offer the promise of bargains and value open to all as an alternative to the ‘what we cant have or afford’

·      Art made from the images around us, which is accessible to all because it celebrates these very things be seen as an antidote to the oppressive nature of the speed of change in imagery within an urban environment which attempts to create an atmosphere where ‘social change is replaced by a change in images’?

·      The power of our choice to celebrate our community and the visuals which surround us by making art!

What will the work look like/be like?

One or more of the following (to be confirmed in collaboration with the organizers and nature of the event as it develops)

·      A poster with addition of gold leaf for an offer of something ‘Not to be Missed.

·      Series of hand-made and digitally combined postcards with the addition of some having gold leafed areas of Luton on offer as a ‘But One, Get One Free’.

·      Flyers, which are either, used and abandoned or ‘For Sale’ with the offer of the chance to ‘But One, Get One Free!’

·      The work will be absolutely affordable, yet original and high quality!

What may this all about?

The work is an offer of art with the promise of free art to all.

The work is offering itself and may be rejected – it will linger momentarily, then fade and have been consumed simply by its submission.

The work may be littered on the pavement at the opening event, it may be stepped on walked over or passed by. It would only exist if it were consumed by the event itself.

Upon purchase or exchange of personal information, the buyer will be eligible for extra information about the work and how it has been arrived at and constructed and will have the opportunity to see more work like this.
