About this artwork
Albert ought really to have put his intellectual acuity into existential exploration, rather than into the false god of physical science. Then he could perhaps have avoided a certain crudity of thought and expression. Ikea, in their turn, are suggesting that, as an intermediate step, he might well have benefitted from strolling around one of their showrooms, the requisite blue bag slung over his shoulder. By association, they are offering the rest of us a similar path to consumer salvation. But having decorated our living quarters, will we be any nearer grasping key truths ? It’s not impossible.

[Part of a limited edition artwork sequence, 1 of only 8]
[Notes] My works are portals to strange and disturbing worlds which cannot be reached any other way. [For a more detailed explanation please check my writings online and videos on Youtube.]
[All artworks are printed on archive quality oyster paper and then professionally framed, with reinforced backing and museum standard acrylic/Perspex. The framing of the larger works alone costs around $2k. Each artwork is shipped in a specially constructed packing case. I personally supervise the production of each one.]
