OMG – where the bloody hell is the apostrophe meant to go… and what about the comma! Forget the exclamation mark – that says it all… and who said brackets were “de rigueur”.

“Not Tonight Josephine.” – was it Napo(leon) to Joseph(ine) or Joseph(ine) “Not Tonight, Josephine.” to Napo(leon). And don't say this was never said, or Leon and Joseph will upset the quotation marks! And what´s this about colons having followers and semicolons being joiners? Visual Euphemisms, and more Linguistic Furniture needed… (more embroidery required)

Euphemisms, visual linguistics, a new juggling of: rhetoric; politics; nuance; stigma; change; questions; challenges; transitions; acceptance; thinking; ways of moving forward…

For Jamie Cole, moving forward continues themes of loss and memory, Men I’ve undressed (series 2019) but taken further challenging the State of Stigma (series 2020).

For Murat Urlali, moving forward is embracing Kitsch and Camp, while drawing on ancient and traditional Persian enamel technigues, connecting idealised Western imagery with spiritual symbolism from the Islamic world.
