STATEMENT

In the past 15 years I have become much more politically active and have felt compelled to make art that is engaged with the injustice of the wars that we perpetrate and to which we contribute. Brian Haw’s campaign in Parliament Square has become the focal point for me and many others and especially his highlighting of the horrors of Depleted Uranium and the disgusting and lethal effects its use has had in Fallujah and elsewhere in Iraq and other counties.
