M.D.F. BARBED WIRE, HOUSEHOLD PAINT, ENAMEL PAINT. THIS WORK WAS PRODUCED DURING A PERIOD OF MAKING SEVERAL IMAGES, ON M.D.F BOARD.THE INSPIRATION CAME FROM A DRAWING SENT TO ME BY A FRIENDS 4 YEAR OLD SON, AFTER I WAS SENT TO PRISON.THE CHILD'S IMAGINATION HAS NO MAGNITUDE ON HIS INNOCENCE. THE IMAGE SHOWS HIM WITH HIS MOTHER AND SISTER OUTSIDE THIER HOUSE, IN A VERY TYPICAL DRAWING FROM A CHILD OF THAT AGE. IT'S INNOCENCE IS DEMINISHED WITH THE USE OF BARBED WIRE, BUT RE-INTRODUCED (OF SORTS), BY COLOURING IT WITH THE ENAMEL PAINT.Year Created: 2003
