Here Be Dragons At The Barbican, London

20 Feb

A free arts festival at London’s Barbican Centre on Saturday February 23rd from 12 noon to 8pm. My work, “Here Be Dragons” will be featured alongside many other artworks commissioned by the TV channel Sky Arts for their ART50 project about post-Brexit Britain.

I did this humungous woodcut print with chine collé inspired by the concept of a new flag for post-Brexit Britain. My work is dystopian, I cannot remember the nation being so fractured and divided. One of the roles of an artist is to hold up a mirror to society and reflect back what’s going on. That’s what I’ve tried to do here.

 

The Sky Arts series of films and programming will be aired in the UK on March 25th.
