Hundred Years of Industrial Warfare 2014
2014 there was confusion surrounding the centenary of World War
At times public events seemed innapropriately celebratory.
My short film 'Salient' was shown at
the Sidney Cooper Gallery and during Whitstable Biennale
'Songs from the Soil'' were made for the group exhibition 'SOIL'
and came out of my early research into the conditions of trench warfare
for the solo exhibition 'Flight'
in November I guest-curated 'Canterbury
at War' for the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in Canterbury
I was invited to take part in 'Handful of Dust', an exhibition
concerned with the plight of children whose lives were being torn apart
by warfare in the middle east.
from the Soil |
and Wasteland were inspired by internet images of children playing
among the bombed ruins of their city.
a lighter note I collaborated with Brook Hobbins for Who Do I
Think I Am?,
an Open studio/gallery event at the Pie Factory in Margate.
Part of the work I created during the show was a series of monotypes for
'Why I Never made it as an Artist'
I also recorded
with the visiting public, exploring art and iidentity in the age of the
Selfie and social media
work began on the commissioned mural
for 1-3 Wenlock Road, London
