With over 50 years experience engaging in art practice and theory I can offer insights that may give you a competitive edge in the field. My experience is of contrarian creativity and conceptual 'hedging'. Useful in this practice is the ability to cross from different fields and to apply those concepts to projects that may, at first sight, not fully align. For this I research lost and forgotten theories, not just in art but also across a full spectrum of science and natural philosophy.
I also have an extensive portfolio of being able to put these ideas into practice. See my website www.paulmalone.co.uk
