"Before the Moon Falls 1"
From 'Lockdown Series' by Jack Pudding
Jack Pudding is a mask to hide behind; a persona that allows the artist to reach beyond the art school dogma of conceptual rigour and continuity of practice, and to have a more playful relationship with material objects and aesthetics. It allows a mutability and playfulness that can’t be found in the dry professionalism of the career artist. Jack is an ‘everyday tourist’, a psychic hobo and a knowing fool. Jack is never sure of anything and never feels fully at home anywhere. Jack is neuro-diverse. Jack is queer. Jack likes to hide in plain sight. They will not be tamed or quantified.
