A Sense Of Place

20th September 17

My piece for 'A Sense Of Place' a graphic art exhibition exploring place, identity and borders with all print sales going to support Refugee Action and The Clock Tower Sanctuary in Brighton.

Here's what I wrote about my piece:
'A sense of place; Initially I struggled with this theme, as I'm not sure I have a sense of place. However, I am very aware I have the luxury of choice - I can move wherever I want, I can explore and maybe one day find my place. One of the things that struck me most when thinking about the theme of borders is the judgement I see from so many British people. The sense of entitlement about those fleeing war, regardless of the random act of luck that they were born here and not there. The hand in the illustration is a calm relief- grounding itself on the pebbles of Brighton beach- remaining steady and figuring things out within this noise.'

Opening on the 21st of September at Boz Boz gallery in Brighton.
