Until a few years ago, I might have called myself an old-school modernist 


But I have since found other excitements 

Prompted by an intriguing challenge from Jane Fairhurst, the Wigan based artist (as part of the GMCA bOlder programme), in 'Play to the Gallery' at 'Obstructions' in Castlefield Gallery, Manchester, I re-invented my childhood imaginary friend, Bramble Richard as the author of the older works 


I imagined one of these, in Castlefield Gallery. There was a back-story; and a visit to the gallery .  .  . by a stranger 

You will find the resulting film in the online show at
