“I have wolfed the book down …. Reading John’s piece “a new role for the artist” is inspirational – and puts into words what I have been striving to articulate for ages. He’s so right about artists having been “hi-jacked” ! Been there, done that and despaired. The relief in seeing these ideas written down not only refuels my dwindling energy reserves but also somewhat salvages my sanity …..” Andrew Kitchen
