Works 2015 - current
Working with ripped or lacerated fly posters I have created a body of work collated over several years which is a process rooted in 'urban archaeology'. Using images, symbols, letters and colour it is an attempt to recreate a sense of place and a redefined identity. This echoes the New Realism movement of the 1960's, and focuses on the marginal remains of civilisation as evidenced in what has happened in any given social context. Materials have been collected in Venice, Thessaloniki, Granada, Heraklion and Limoges and this is ongoing.
