The Daily Paintings
The Daily Painting project returns! From December 1st 2023, I will release a new painting or drawing every day before 5pm GMT for 100 consecutive days.
Born in the middle of the pandemic, this ‘Daily Paintings’ project was my DIY punk-inspired response to a world in shutdown. To try and find a new connection, beyond the usual channels, I decided to launch myself into releasing a small painting or drawing every day on Instagram. I hadn’t engaged fully with social media until this point so it was an experiment with an unknown outcome. Initially I committed myself to making and releasing 100 paintings on 100 consecutive days and each work was available for 100 pounds. The amount was intended to be accessible to everyone, and in many ways removed from the rest of my practice, a wild outsider experimenting in the potting shed. Instead of stopping at 100 days I continued on for another 500 consecutive days, finding the wildness of the project inspiring. All of the works found homes, many in far away places. Some of the ideas and techniques that I have loved most over the past couple of years have grown out of the experimental chaos of this project.
