There is just so much to extract from his work, so many ideas to explore.
So because of this rediscovery I have been inspired to work with plexiglass once again. I love the material, it has allowed me to create so much depth, mood, atmosphere and suspense in my work. My latest piece 'Forgotten and Remembered' looks at images, some we can instantly recognize and others not. Images like the Virgin Mary will always be remembered generation after generation whereas the female figure on the left side is unknown and forgotten. I found her image on a tomb stone, there was no visible name to identify her and her grave had long been forgotten.
I decided to surround the artwork in barbed wire and tea candle roses which are handmade to tie the work together but also to go 'beyond' the boundary of the plexiglass. Overall I think this piece is pretty successful, it has certainly given me lots of ideas, and I hope it inspires some of you too!
