Ivanunframed is a working name under which are nested a continually evolving series of work.
Some of the work is performance or perhaps more situational in style, covering gallery walls in newsprint and drawing an evolving but temporary work.The wrapping of a public monument is about visual emancipation as much as it is about audience involvement. This took place in Totnes 24th may 2013. (Please see my events).The installation went really well and there is a short video that was made to the tune of Blowing in the Wind-Bob Dylan, it was his birthday!

There is a new series of works which have involved study of Situationist and Interventionist art forms. As a response to the writing of Baudrillard and to some extent Guy Debord Claire Bishop and Boris Groys (amongst many others) I have worked on a social comment combined with a personal expression of how consumption and art have collided.I continue to try to erode the false demarcation between, artist, work and would be spectator.The preference is to generate a live emotion as a happening, that is unique and subjective,where only a collective memory can be traced.
