Society and Politics within Piccadilly

I draw current wider socio-political ideas as they manifest within smaller communities. This project is a result of research into a London club manifesting ideas about populism and the power of narrative over truth.

  • I research communities in closed door environments reflecting on how wider socio-political ideas manifest within these groups and subsequently draw from imagination and memory.

    I am interested in how thoughts, feelings and ideas manifest themselves, and how they are unconsciously passed around, constantly wrapped, unwrapped and repackaged. It seems no matter how hard we try, we don’t change much, and it's this futility that I find so interesting, and so comical.
