|When a man takes up the offer
to become a Freemason he will most likely have little real
what it is he is undertaking. He will do so for a variety of reasons.
One being to gain approval from his Father, Peers, Colleagues
Business Associates. As he progresses through the levels he is like a
being lessoned to graduation. Hence in this work I have placed brand
new child alphabet
letters on these old English Masonic Aprons. And of each level. Each
achieving coherence. Finally the Past Master has Passed. Has arrived
and achieved acceptance. Approval. On one level it's simple symbolism.
It is also the custom to seek approval for such related works before exhibition or publication and, while I would not wish to offend or be rude, I am also with this work saying that as an English Artist, in that culture and tradition, that I do not feel I need 'approval' to express myself creatively.
