David S

Yesterday afternoon, I went to a laugh out loud exhibition. Obviously, it was David Shrigley at the Hayward Gallery. It was such a nice change to see people walking round a gallery chuckling and smiling, made me think loads about the kind of work I want to be making. Work that anyone can get whether they're into art or not, work that you don't have to stand next to explaining your concept to for five minutes.

Shrigley put on a great show. Photography, sculpture, animation, painting, taxidermy, iron casting, biscuits, drawings - I don't think Shrigley has a preference, he just uses the materials and processes he thinks will do the job. So cool! As it's so easy to get stuck in a rut. Such an inspiring and feel good show. Can't wait to sit down and read through the book.

The show runs till 13th May 2012
