NOT BANKSY is DEAD and NOT BANKSY will NOT be RESURRECTED 

As it is known NOT BANKSY died in 2008. Now 10 years on NOT BANKSY’s memory is honoured with this NON-RESURRECTION edition by NOT NOT BANKSY. That’s right: NOT NOT BANKSY, not NOT BANKSY.

NOT NOT BANKSY is not NOT BANKSY as NOT BANKSY is dead. These prints are a homage to NOT BANKSY, not BANKSY, by a new artist known as NOT NOT BANKSY who continues the great work of NOT BANKSY and not BANKSY. Some people think it is NOT known if BANKSY was ever involved in the NOT BANKSY project, or if NOT BANKSY is NOT DEAD and in fact is NOT NOT BANKSY. The latter is unprovable but we know categorically that BANKSY was NOT involved in any creation or idea formed by NOT BANKSY, or the THE CONTINUITY NOT BANKSY, and certainly not NOT NOT BANKSY! Is that clear?

NOT NOT BANKSY artworks are made by 2 artists formerly known as STOT21stCplanB who, for the purposes of appearing more intelligible and serious, changed their name to Harry Adams in 2008 and still stand accused of killing NOT BANKSY. They have reverted to STOT21stCplanB to be known as NOT NOT BANKSY specially for this occasion.

Furthermore: Even though the NOT BANKSY works of old are now selling for hundreds of pounds on the secondary market, the artists and we the publisher are sticking to our principle that chasing art market prices is a dire fallacy and have decided to keep this new edition at a reasonable price. May all but the artist profit from it!

Nothing Remains… Exhibition preview by Harold Rosenbloom

Harry Adams Nothing Remains But the Clouds 2

A generation that had gone to school on a horse-drawn streetcar now stood under the open sky in a countryside in which nothing remained unchanged but the clouds, and beneath these clouds, in a field of force of destructive torrents and explosions, was the tiny, fragile human body.
Walter Benjamin, Illuminations: Essays and Reflections

“This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labour to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.
Walt Whitman, from the introduction to the first edition of Leaves of Grass

Our work may look like it’s confused and conflicted, but it is in fact a highly controlled poetic outpouring”²
Harry Adams
