Following the direction of my recent art works, I have been writing about the ways that contemporary art is received and used by different audiences. The article 'Lost & Found' reflects some research I conducted on media representations of contemporary art in the UK, and is hopefully the start of a larger academic research project. I have also written critically about the way that participatory practices are often used and abused. Writers who are artists do have a greater insight, I feel, into the problems and processes of the studio, and I have sometimes tried to address these in essay form. It is easy to criticise from the sidelines as a critic, but as an artist you have to face the problem of actually putting something physical and material out there.
