I am so happ to have visited Manchester and able to see this within the art gallery. I love the high shine and my reflection becomes apart of the work. This huge work questions American culture and way of life in the UK. I really think this work is connected to my own questing and cultural questioning. I love the dream like impression of the retail park and the atmosphere that is created from the night sky and cheeky neon lights below.
where are we in the world? I feel my MA work is relevant more than ever before. The Paris attack and detachment within the world with what really matters. Visually its all around us and we need to start making active ways to reconnect with humanity. Touch and reconnect to the world…
