David Palliser, artist, exhibition, gallery 9

Beyond the unawkward
Keep the ingredients motiveless
Painting is sculpture
Find a state of suspension
I may as well have no idea
Make your own found objects
Mineral vs. Fake
Never allow predigested solutions
Find,Find,Find!!!!!!
Ignore professionals
Art is not lawnmowing
Trust folding turnbuckle arrangements
Weirdly this is where the real picture begins
Collapse is wonderful
Drink plenty of water
Art won’t help
