"Bird" (selected for Southwark Arts Forum "Tides of Change/Art at the Bridge" No 6 exhibition at Tower Bridge, London, 2015. Mixed media, 60 cm x 40 cm (Private Collection). This piece refers to the ongoing excavations of Civil War (1936-39) mass-graves in Spain.
"Bird" (head detail). The composition, colours and skeletal "eagle" reference the fascist version of the Spanish flag under Franco. I use roofing-felt, glue, filler, galvanised nails and tacks on hardboard to obtain a wasted, decaying effect.
