"FALSAS PROMESAS" John Fekner Charlotte Street, South Bronx, New York circa 1980. The gift of a print from John, although i didn't meet John until 2010, this work had & still has a huge impact on me, it was a work motivated to question the status quo & strive for a greater good, devoid of ego & self, it made me question what was my own motivation & whilst it still took me may more years to understand that John himself has shown me that what we do is just as important as who we are, for however transient the paint on a wall might be it's a greater strength than we could ever hope to be ourselves. to quote John " "When i first did the stencils on Charlotte Street i realised that something done rather quickly and with the right spirit could last a very long time". Thank you John.
