 England is Mine, It Owes me a Living

 

Work created as a result of three years of study at art school. The set is for sale at £28,000 - the cost of a university education.

 

The work is created through boredom and loneliness and is the result of my entirely solitary, melancholy image making process. I will walk for miles and miles, often around the disregarded, wilting parts of the city that cling on to their heritage by a thread, constantly under the shadow of the steel and glass of city development.

 

Rather than in a narrative fashion I prefer to think the work follows a melody, ebbing and flowing rather than existing in a strict, linear form.
