REPUGNANT by Jake Francis
I am an inadequate person. It’s true, I lack the very basic skills of many human beings. I have inferior physical strength. At best I have an average intellect. My physical appearance is both peculiar and uninteresting. I have no real skills, only being able to claim “dabble” status on most activities. I imagine that my approach as a lover is a 6/10. And worst of all, I am an artist.
Now, you might have read all of that in a pessimistic way, but as I write this it feels rather liberating. With low expectations, there is little to lose, meaning that already you are entering my upcoming exhibition with such poor expectations, you’re bound to be impressed. OR you simply think that I’m playing myself down, sitting here at my keyboard with a dapper smile and pheasant sat beside me, exchanging glances of superiority and charm.
To be honest, neither is the case. I am a surrealist artist who enjoys making things. No tricks, no thrills, no tarting up or sugar coating. There will be a room full of things, and if you would like to come and see these things I would be happy to meet you and discuss said things. If you’re not interested in seeing my things then no hard feelings.
