Exposing all our little foibles, the crazy ambitions we might bury, our secret wonderings about the guy sitting opposite us on the tube - not to mention the judgements we make about our neighbours' curtains, etc., etc., 'I'm Not Weird' explores the spectrum of emotions we slide up and down on daily basis and takes a closer look at our most fleeting thoughts and ideas and encourages 'em to hang around for a little bit longer than usual.
Neil explains the back story...
"For the past few months I’ve been keeping numerous sketchbooks to hand. I've been jotting down all the little thoughts that would otherwise be forgotten. At the same time, I've been talking to other folk, urging them to make note of any funny little thoughts and ideas they have too. The idea being that later, I'll gather all the notes together and illustrate them.
The end result will be a collection of pieces ranging from the funny, personal and sad; to the downright weird and disturbing. Since the work will be presented tightly in The Tiny Gallery at The Maisonette, coming to the show will be like walking into a collective brain. A weird collective brain."
