Recent Activity are pleased to present 'Best Wishes, Warm Regards, Many Thanks!' a solo presentation by Luke Dowd and invite you to the opening as part of Digbeth First Friday.

I’ll say this – Art is conversational. My art speaks to me and I talk back. Art speaks to my work. My art talks back. I don’t want to use words like imbue, fecundity, tradition, radical or rich.

My work is a daily practice of thinking of how to express myself. I get seduced by my medium – the tool; and then I try to change. Morph, fecund and imbue.
I’m presenting a series of 12 (?) digitally developed prints on the south wall. I might show them in grid formation. I think of them as paintings, even though they are on paper.

And I will also show a book- a magazine really. It is a collection of drawings, scanned and framed within a book format. 

This is for sale. £5. Cheap!
