Art Description

Printmaking: Etching on Paper.

'Divide and conquer' combines two maps or systems of categorisation. One displays the world in its entirety and how it should be correctly divided and the second, a butchers' map, is the guide to how an animal should be correctly divided and named.
Both display the human perception of dominance and its arrogance, the self-entitlement and the need to gain ownership of the world through naming or labelling.

This artwork was shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize 2015.
