'Thoughts Are Free ' Exhibition

Delighted to be part of the Royal Glasgow Institute of Fine Art "Thoughts Are Free'  Exhibition.  Runs 10 July to 20 August 2020.

Definition of ‘put a sock in it’ (Oxford dictionary):
British informal

  • (usually in imperative) Stop talking.

Thoughts are free, but we are not free from the consequence of our words and actions. This time is overwhelming . We just need to know where we are going and what to do. We need hope. Hope that the virus will abate , quieten down , retract , be muted.


Hope and despair are synonymous with each other. Despair exists in a continuum with hope. Despair at what sometimes feels hopeless . Despair at untruths,  lies, misinformation and a deafening silence at the absurdity of it all . The hypocrisy of it. This work is in direct response to my desire to stop it and them being unbearable. Hope is not given by being hypocritical. Hope must be reflected in positive actions and words
