‘Backlash’. Triptych. Oil, Acrylic Ink and Resin on hardboard panels. 102x54cm.
ARTIST STATEMENT: This piece I hope will encourage a conversation about what ‘Unity’ means. It worries me that the ‘Union Flag’ denies the Welsh. This ‘flag’ is superimposed over a beach like landscape/ground. The focus of this painting is upheaval. The resonance between people and landscape, national and cultural identity and heritage. It explores the undercurrent within British politics and the UK population. We can all feel the shifting sands under our feet and are disturbed by what we find just below the surface of our national landscape.”
