The At traveller is not art criticism. It’s art writing. Which I define as ‘writing about art as a creative practice’.
The four basic principles of Art Writing
1. Art writing is a creative practice.
2. Art writing embraces writing as a creative approach toward all aspects of art, including the art object and / or its context.
3. Art writing is not criticism but it can include all forms of art criticism, including that which is experimental and the hybrid.
4. In Art Writing, I may engage intensely with the artwork, or it may simply be the starting point for fictional and/or poetic developments.
I make art, I take photos, I make films and I write books about art and film – mainly about how cinema (and moving image work in general) is influenced by Art. I have a PhD in art and film.
I’m interested in painting and art history, scenography, cinematography, production design, VFX etc.
For a while now I’ve been based in London but my work takes me all over the place: Germany, the US, Russia, Spain, Egypt, Switzerland – you name it. I’m always pretty much ready to go.
My interest in history has taken me into both documentary film-making, short films and artists’ video. Quite a lot my work explores historical events or places.
