Euan Uglow and there was a miner's strike, punk and very exciting times generally. We were shown some amazing footage of the time. I was very impressed by the people Ferry knew at the time, including Derek Jarman.
David Ferry enjoys the juxtaposition of events and art, and started off his art career in a time of abstraction, and went against the grain with what he was doing.
His work is now largely illustrative, his use of glue and glitter lending a suggestion of the burlesque to his work. It was only at the end of the talk I realised I didn't have a photograph of David, so here's one taken with the 'Thank you' showing in the background.
