The First Solo Exhibition of Joe Machine: Machine Evolution,

Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery, Tramshed,

3 May – 24 May 2013

The history of British art, from William Blake to Francis Bacon, is littered with artists who have followed extremely unorthodox paths to artistic achievement and maturity. Recently a particularly fascinating example of this has began to make an impact on the current art scene – just at the moment when the much-touted YBA group of the Nineties and Noughties has started to run out of steam.

Joe Machine, born Joe Stokes, owes his beginnings as an artist to the ‘remodernist’ Stuckist Group, best known as vocal opponents of the Turner Prize, and foes of Tate Modern’s ofcial, state-subsidized version of avantgardism.

Stuckism has more tangled origins than may appear to be the case at rst sight. Its roots are in the-as-yet little chronicled Medway arts scene of the 1990s, which was in many ways a new version of the now revered Liverpool Scene of twenty to thirty years earlier, with the same mixture of punk rock, performance poetry and art. Other well-known alumni of this are the painter, poet and novelist Billy Childish, and the Royal Academy’s current Professor of Drawing, Tracey Emin CBE. It was in fact Tracey Emin who provided the group with its name, on one occasion yelling at Childish, then her boyfriend, ‘The trouble with you, Billy is that you’re Stuck! Stuck! Stuck!’
