I am enormously pleased that my written work - “Automata Exhibition” - is included in the current issue of Paraphilia Magazine. Originally written about a year ago, around a sequence of paintings by the incredibly talented Siolo Thompson, I am fantastically pleased that three of Siolo’s paintings accompany my work, and am deeply honoured that one of these is a completely new canvas painted for this project.
Once again Paraphilia have produced an electric issue that puts the predictable tedium of most other journals to shame. A fantastic collection of words and images, Issue V also includes a fascinating 24-page interview with legendary Stooges’ guitarist James Williamson.

There is also an excellent article in the Manifesto section of Paraphilia – a highly recommended read:
The Heart-ache and the Thousand Natural Shocks
