“Stop Doing Stupid Things”


Stop Doing Stupid Things was a winter lockdown response to human behaviour at the end of 2020, inspired by a comment by Dr Gail Bradbrook of Extinction Rebellion. Using materials I had at home, I drew 250 versions of the print as a meditative, performative act.

Crow Dillon-Parkin works across multiple disciplines and drawing is a central part of their practice, often concealed by layers of other processes, such as collage, video and installation. Re-use and repetition are triggers for new works. What changes when the work gets bigger or smaller? What happens when something moves from 2D to 3D, from live performance to the photographic image, from spoken word to drawing?

Their work centres on the articulation of embodied experience from a feminist perspective. Current work explores individual and political responses to the climate emergency and the coronavirus pandemic. There is always a story in the work, but the story is not always explicit.
