Had a tutorial with Alan yesterday. It was very positive. As usual, great advice from Alan,he has a great knowledge of issues within contemporary art; he has suggested I research the artist Bill Drummond, by all accounts, he is the kind of mad cap fellow which I can appreciate. Other artists he suggested which could be researched in reference to my work were: Patricia McKenna, Martin Creed,Denis McNulty,Alaistair Maclennan,and the quintessential Joseph Beuys. He has mentioned Roland Barthes philosopher as well.
