The Launch of Utter Journal 3


In this issue of Utter Journal there’s no conclusion or attempt to identify with the existential elements of war. Here is no more than a collection of data by one artist, his war collection, his own child like preoccupation with the overbearing reality of war. At times his denial and naïvety appears overwhelmed by the sheer weight of message, and a realisation that, outside the primordial warrior class, we are all swept up as the accidental casualties of a deep psychological confinement to the all-pervasive indent of war and an inability to reconcile with the sanitised detachment that has become our burden.
