abombpress was established by Bristol born Artist Greg Derrick several years back. The idea behind abombpress was conceived, that words and ideas are more incendiary than bombs. Book art is the medium used to explore ideas which are ultimately squeezed into paper bound pressurised containers. Greg creates book work that draws on the absurdity of existence and explores the nagging doubts that plague us all. His work is also about place and he uses pyschogeography and its ideas to chart the unseen, ethereal and transient, physically.

Drawing on influences as varied as Situationism to chips and beer, Greg is able to leap between the collapsing metanarratives of the current postmodernism citadels of Art and the mundane resplendence of the minutia of everyday life.
