A Warm Evening

(at the end of April in a woodland near by)

'On Practice' is an experimental approach to documenting or mapping my current artistic and academic practice. The piece was produced alongside 'but what happened in the Summer' and 'Untitled (A Millenium of Mancunia)' as a way of understanding the relationship between the two pieces.

'On Practice' is still in progress and continues to be updated and rewritten.

A sharp crack
splintered the warm air
as he threw a final log

startled by the sudden

Our friend looks up

startled by the sudden

break in the silence
Oh -a guilty smile- Oh
well it’s only going to waste

Here we have the same; so many layers of renewal. Transfigurations of concrete and metal so that the layers no longer know each other yet can exist almost simultaneously.
