Mission Statement

Johns current practice focuses primarily on drawing and the use of formal practices and structures to allow his expressive and cartoonish tendencies to find an artistic balance. These structures include screen printing, paper engineering, typography, bookmaking, narrative and prose. He likes to experiment we’ve these structures, intentionally breaking the rules, creating new rules or challenging their normal applications. John is very interested in humour, he sees a parallel between his rule breaking and the way some jokes allow us to gain pleasure from sources we normally repress such as violence, sex or absurdity. It is Johns intention to use the rest of his Masters to further develop these themes whilst honing his practice in a view to making his work more commercially attractive.
