no man is an island

Dapper Dan and moustachioed man about town Nicholas Jones is a perennial favourite of the ladies of HML. His deft sculpting fingers work a scalpel as sharp as his wit and the crease of his well pressed trousers.

Continuing his exploration of the book as both subject and object this new exhibition To the Islands, literally charts new waters. Playing on the sociological, psychological, mythical and historical literary associations with islands Nick expounds upon his ongoing interest in cartography, cleverly working 12 small volumes and 12 small islands into pieces that "question the futurology of the book and the notions of solitude and disengagement that are the island"...clever fella. Well worth the trip out of town for. BECK
