A 3 panel artwork with an iPhone screenshot on the left (in the first panel) showing an Instagram DM conversation between me and a curator. The conversation culminates with the curator asking me, CAN WE GET MORE BUILDERS???? to which I reply LOL OK.

The second and third panels are scans of an oil painting, slit across 2 pieces of pink A4 paper, which when laid beside each other depict two builders riding a tandem bicycle. Behind them you can see a pavement and a curb and both of them look crazy happy.

TAKE A PHOTO OF ELS WITH A CRISP

CUSTARD PIE

A white A4 scan of a piece of writing is mounted onto a yellow background page. The text, scrawled in ink in the top third of the page, reads as follows;  I'D PROBABLY TRY TO MAKE A FILM ABOUT A PERSON WHO TRIES TO OPEN A LITTLE CAN OF COKE. THEY HAVE VERY SHORT FINGER NAILS SO THIS PROVES TO BE TRICKY, EVENTUALLY THEY PRAY TO GOD AND A HOLY HAND SHOWS UP TO HELP OUT. STORY ENDS ON THE SOUND OF A RING PULL CRACKING AND THE TRIUMPHANT HISS OF A JOB WELL DONE. THE HISS GOES ON THOUGH, SEEMINGLY TURNING INTO THE HISS OF A DEFLATING BALLOON OR A SNAKE.
