DICK JEWELL PHOTOGRAPHY-FILM)







WHERE DOES YOUR WORK START?
IN MY HEAD, IT'S MAINLY CONCEPTUAL, THOUGH ITS DRIVEN BY OBSERVATION.

WHAT MOST INSPIRES YOU?
GOOD ART, GOOD FILMS, ARTISTS WHO KEEP GOING AT IT UNTIL THEY DROP IN THERE NINETIES, IN THE LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS I'VE REALLY ENJOYED WATCHING 'EYE MACHINE III' (AUGE/MASCHINE III) BY HARUN FAROCKI AND ALSO 'THE GLEANERS' (LA GLEANEURS) BY AGNES VARDA.

WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT YOUR WORK?
INITIALLY THE FLEETING SATISFACTION THAT YOU GET FROM COMPLETING A PIECE OF WORK AND THEN THE OCCASIONAL FEEDBACK THAT SOMEONE'S ENJOYED IT OR IT HAS INSPIRED THEM.

WHAT HAVE BEEN THE BEST AND WORST BITS OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR?
IF I HAVE TO CONSIDER BEING AN ARTIST AS A CAREER I SUPPOSE LAST YEAR WAS A GOOD BIT WITH SELLING WORK AT THE ROYAL ACADEMY SUMMER SHOW AND THE FRIEZE ART FAIR NEITHER OF WHICH I'D EXHIBITED IN BEFORE. AS FOR THE WORST BIT, POSSIBLY MY SHOWING WORK AT THE ELISE MEYER GALLERY IN NEW YORK, EARLY ON IN MY CAREER, AS APART FROM GETTING PAID FOR THE RED DOTS THAT WERE ON THE WALL AT THE TIME, AS I JUST HAPPENED TO ARRIVE IN NEW YORK WHILE THE SHOW WAS ON, NEVER HAVING ANY OF MY WORK RETURNED OR HEARING FROM HER AGAIN WAS PRETTY SHABBY.

WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE?
AT THE MOMENT I JUST CONCENTRATE ON KEEPING GOING, I'D LIKE TO FIND SOMEWHERE TO GIVE MY LASTEST FILM 'JEWELL' A PUBLIC AIRING, PREFERABLY SOMEWHERE WITH SEATS AS IT'S A COUPLE OF HOURS LONG.

HOW DO YOU INCORPORATE THE VARIETY OF INFLUENCES IN YOUR WORK?
I SUPPOSE THAT JUST HAPPENS NATURALLY, THE PIECE I'M WORKING ON RIGHT NOW IS A GOOD CASE IN POINT, IT'S AFTER THE PIETER BREUGAL THE ELDERS 'THE BATTLE BETWEEN CARNIVAL AND LENT' PAINTED IN THE 16TH CENTURY, I'M TRYING TO REPLACE EVERY ELEMENT OF HIS PAINTING VIA PHOTO MONTAGE.

WHERE ARE YOU FROM BORN - LIVING?
I WAS BORN IN AND I'M LIVING IN PIMLICO.

WHATS YOUR FAVOURITE THING RIGHT NOW?
I CAN'T ANSWER THIS, I SIMPLY DON'T HAVE A FAVOURITE THING, I'M HAPPY CHELSEA ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE RIGHT NOW, DOES THAT COUNT?
