He is soon opening an exhibition about the life of UG Krishnamurti – about which I am going to write next. But have a look at this older work that I picked up from the web here.
During the 1980s, at a high-security mental hospital in Devon, England, a page-long story about a man called Joe Odd, was found. In the mid 80s the artist Nicolas C Grey got hold of this story and in 1991, the 3-page long Stroy of Joe Odd was created. The Stroy of Joe Odd is a surrealistic tale about norms, control and lunacy.
The way Nic talks about his work appeals to me, because it conveys the essence of what good art is about: if I could express myself verbally, then I wouldn’t need to draw the pictures. I envy him. I write because I haven’t got any better way to express myself.
