Project Description

Human Shield I, II & III were exhibited in Barcelona at the ARTFAD finalist’s show where I was awarded first prize and in a juried show at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen. They 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. The collage photo-montages 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.
