A blog. It’s come to this. Thank you, WordPress, webworld.ie and Feedburner.

Where to begin? It’s nice to see Theo Sims is back on the island. If you want wry art, he’s your man. I hope his own practice will continue, though he’s bound to be busy as the new Director of the Context Galleries in Derry. More on Theo here.

There’s an undoubted shiver running through the visual arts at the moment. Blame the bankers, naturally. They aren’t yet throwing themselves off skyscrapers here, but that could be down to a lack of skyscrapers. The Arts Councils are likely to take a hit, and downstream then all the organisations they support. That reminds me of a bugbear, but that’s for another day.
