“FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE”

PLEASE READ

Ed Lehan asked me for a painting that was hanging in
my flat. I gave him one. It was made in 1990 & meant to
be a generic abstract. Now I said OK if I give you a
painting then you must make me 20 copies, 20 identical,
readymade, abstract paintings. OK this happened and
here they are, they are about not being an assistant and
not having one, ethical pure exploitation, and like totally
also about how in the intervening 20 years, a generic
abstract definitely means something different to back
then, it incorporates “net” knowledge, curation and post-
nonirony like the change from acid house rave music to
the garage music of todayʼs London scene.
