I made some drawings on the ipad based on a show called Fake Or Fortune, which concerned itself in authenticating some Henry Moore sketches from the early 30s. In its wide-ranging quest for validation, the daughter of Henry Moore was interviewed sitting surrounded by some beautiful Polynesian sculptures.
Moore’s work was considered degenerate by the Nazis, and the drawings featured in the show were deemed authentic. I thought the mysterious creations in his house would have passed the degenerate test. I was reading the late, great David Graeber's Bullshit Jobs and it occurred to me that there might be more occupations to dish out...
My versions all celebrate in their joyful way, jobs that have only a mythical value in today’s world of half-baked terminology.

They are celebrations of unreality. Not that they'd admit it.
