The show PLAYTIME will run until Friday 29th May.
I called the show playtime. Firstly, because the ideas for these images have been ignited, directly or indirectly, by the many happy hours of play time I have spent with my son.
Over these 12 years together, we have actually managed to rove space and time. We battled with many villainous foe and forged enduring friendships with the most unlikely selection of surreal characters. We have been been slain and lost, then reborn and saved on countless occasions.
The show’s title also embraces the importance of a similar sense of playtime within the adult creative process, and the idea that we are not necessarily so far removed from our former childhood selves.
Finally, playtime serves as a reminder of the slightly glib truism that; no matter how tricky things get we’re not here for a long time, so we may as well try and have a good time!
