I met Will 9 years ago on the 99 bus, there was no reason for us to have a conversation. He was at school and I was at college. Along with the other students, how I remember it at the time was that most of the other people on the bus were much older than us. From that perspective we were much nearer together in age.
We would chat every so often, I remember we once went to WH Smiths and he stole a chocolate bar. Before I left Bexhill College we talked about our plans for the future. I wish I could say that this is when we started planning this show together.
We ended up going to the same art school 4 years apart. This isn’t the future we talked about but I think this exhibition will so go somewhere towards retracing the steps that led up to it.
And then some steps before it.
