Talking Stock

Talking Stock

"The historical root of this is from stock taking - counting or assessing the number of animals on your farm, or the number of items in stock in your shop etc.

To review or make an overall assessment of a particular situation, typically as a prelude to making a decision.

To think carefully about the things that have happened in a situation in order to decide what to do next.

In this installation, which is made up of dozens of pieces made recently to long ago, I am taking stock: putting things together to look at them; to see how much I can cram into a room like puzzle; to see all the parts of me; to understand the facets, the time, the ideas, the divergences, the tracks, the patterns that repeat themselves through the decades; to take stock of the idiosyncratic artist I am. To revel in this, and to see it anew, with you."
