Conservative Conference ; The “Respect” is Mutual

The “Respect” is Mutual II
Michael St.Mark 2017


The CPC gets underway in Manchester. Digital photo screenshot of BBC live coverage off an old analogue TV screen with the sound setting on mute.

Second in the series. Pertaining to present and previous Conservative administrations’ turning a deaf ear to peoples’ concerns on health, education, housing etc ( eg NHS, Grenfell, Elderly Care  ). The image symbolic of increasing numbers of voters giving in return a deaf ear to hollow words and perpetual promises of what is now terminally transparent “jam tomorrow politics”. TM

Turner Prize 2017; London Dada’s 11 year anti-ageism campaign success

Turner Prize chiefs finally shamed into removing the anachronistic and blatantly ageist Under-50 rule for shortlisted entrants. Did any other artists have the moral courage to put their careers at risk by daring to criticize the TP directors over this?

London Dada Work No. 990/A; The Pilgrim’s Readership/ VIP


The Pilgrim’s Readership
Michael St. Mark 2017


The 17th C. Bunhill Fields tomb of John Bunyon, author of the world-renowned tome The Pilgrim’s Progress
A rare man of principle, who spent 12 years in prison after refusing to give up his nonconformist preaching.
In these corporate-dominated days of a cowed, fearful and play safe populace, non conformists get ignored and excluded – or if they manage through great effort to poke their heads above the parapet; pilloried in the mainstream media.

Work No. 989; Water – Larkin about

Work No. 889; Water ( Larkin about )
Michael St.Mark 2017

93 million miles of sunlight traveling at 186,000 miles per second zapps into a wine glass 1/4 full of water on a table top in a Haute Savoie garden, France. August 2017.
Somehow feels utterly pure..and miraculous that it’s possible to see right though a SOLID OBJECT

In homage to Philip Larkin’s poem “Water”
