ALL I EVER
pink neon on heavily distressed and burnt spray painted board
Depeche Mode sung the immortal words but the meaning to myself has a much different prevalence. All I Ever Wanted, All I Ever Needed, is Here in My Arms, symbolizes the fragility of relationships, a simple mistake can lead to a break up and then perhaps a personal breakdown, the burning pink luvvie neon sits on an original “destroyed” piece of art.

'Some songs have mystical meaning, some songs grab you by the seat of your pants, Brownie’s “Forget Everything and Remember”, to me, is about my childhood. Abandoned at 14, escaping the authorities and ensuing care home callings, I managed to persuade family friends to put me through school and exams, and somehow getting through some awful times, I’m now me, Mark illuminati. I’ve tried to forget my past but it just won’t go away. The brightness and colourfulness of the piece belies how I feel about it.'
