Art Description

Collage: Paper, Paint, Ink on Paper, Wood.

Original painting collage.
Arrives in 4 sections, easy to assemble

Carnivals, makeshift shrines, allotment gardens, protest signage and handwritten notes are some of the found forms of expression which intrigue and stimulate my arts practice. I’m interested in the cultural artefacts and experiences that are created for celebration, mourning, demonstration, worship or survival which allow us, for a brief moment, to journey psychologically within the joy, sadness, meditation and belief, and freedom or dependence of our fellow beings.

In addition to this research I recently spent 18 months working from an allotment shed to observe a micro society and became fascinated by the impulse to plant in rows and grids. I questioned whether this instinct crossed over into social design.
'Integration' draws comparisons between the patterns of planting arrangements created by allotment gardeners to encourage growth and the social segregation patterns which we are currently witnessing at a time of hardening attitudes to both disadvantaged people and immigrants.
