ARTCASTS is a new series of prints created in collaboration with long-time friends Scott Redford and Anthony Lister. The images were sourced from Lister’s brazenly graffitied pages of an original Redford exhibition catalogue (Bricks are Heavy, 2006). Whilst Lister’s somewhat ‘smutty’ images and texts may be unsettling in their appearance, this ‘interruption’ bears the classic hallmarks of Redford’s post contemporary thinking. Indeed, Redford comments about the immediacy of this work, “Nicolas Bourriaud (French curator) once said that the most interesting art was that which could change with each new situation it found itself in. This is what sets Anthony Lister apart from mainstream Contemporary Fine Art. Lister's work moves from the street in to the gallery and then back on to the street. I was thrilled when Lister "vandalised" my catalogue because it then meant this work was freed to move rather than stay fixed in Fine Art.”

HOUSE OF THE RISING SON 2019
House of the Rising Son, is a series of five works completed between 2013 and 2019, in collaboration between Scott Redford & Anthony Lister. Lister has ‘graffitied” over (a glass framed set) of Redford’s iconic 2001 Urinal photographs. A blatant, if not scathing, critique of the institutional sexual abuse scandals which have engulfed the churches for decades, these works appear automatically loaded to the urgency of prescient outrage.
