STATES OF CONTRADICTION

States of Contradiction 1 – Conviction

Free Standing Lead Glass Sculpture

approx 60 x 45 cms

My work is often concerned with the relationship between two opposites.  In States of Contradiction 1 – 3 three screen-printed and slumped glass works weave text and image in a warp and weft of what is said and what is done in war.

 This work was produced as the culmination of a residency in 2002/04 at The University of Hertfordshire organised through the Artist’s Access to Art Colleges Scheme (AA2A) and Funded by ACE & CHEAD

 This work was selected for exhibition at the 2004 Greenbelt Festival ‘Freedom/Bound’ at Cheltenham Racecourse.

 This work is concerned with ‘prisoners of war’ who are bound and confined, without due process of law and in contravention of the Geneva Convention.

The weaving of the horizontal text and vertical images symbolise the dichotomy between two opposites and highlights the disparity between sentiments expressed within the American Constitution and the practice of holding prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba
