A very raw, self-knowingly OTT reaction to the general election results last week. I wanted to evoke the feeling of a 1970's Italian horror film. Lots of abstract, jarring juxtapositions of surreal imagery. An Argento movie set in Buckingham Palace while Cameron met the Queen. It was fun, and weirdly cathartic to draw ram's heads and crows.
On a more positive note, on the weekend after the results, I started to think about all the artists I know who were feeling angry or despairing at the prospect of another five years of a Tory government - and how there were probably loads of campaigns and protest groups gearing up soon, who would need artwork... So I set up a mailing list for artists to sign up to - so that when that art is needed, I could send out a newsletter to all the artists who were interested in getting involved and helping out. It feels good to put that energy into doing something positive and I'm excited to see what this group can do! If you'd like to sign up, click here.
