THE OUTBREAK GAMES

These brightly coloured Pop Art pieces look as delicate as coral, but at the same time as dangerous as sea mines playing with our conflicting responses simultaneously delighting in their prickly beauty whilst fearing the threat they represent.

Whilst these sculptures were created in response to recent pandemics such as Ebola & Avian Flu, the subject is approached playfully with some of the works being based on Noughts & Crosses, Bar Billiards, Jacks and Chess. We are asked to consider whether these are merely games of chance or might we be gambling our lives away?

This artwork has been exhibited at the Bath Fringe Arts Festival 2016, Warrington Arts Festival 2016, World Museum Liverpool and at the STEAM gallery, Wigan in 2017.
