Project Description

Human Shield I, II & III form part of a series of works in the shape of a female breast plate and incorporate motifs and images which explore the recurrent themes and concerns in my work: history and its associations, memory, the fleeting and transitory. Although the breastplate protects, it also represents a certain vulnerability at a given time, thus acting as a metaphor for fragility and strength.The collage photomontages  of indoor and outdoor spaces feature elements with special associations for myself from pomegranates to poppies to scallop shells symbolic of the Way of St James.
