Migration

Like many other artists I find myself drawing on my dreams for inspiration. These include vivid nightmares, scenarios of anxiety and disaster, which the displaced and the persecuted inhabit for real. However our understanding of that reality has been distorted and subsumed into what Adam Curtis calls "The Politics of Fear" in an attempt to disguise the underlying causes of migration and absolve the powerful of responsibility. In these screen prints, as a riposte to this politics, I imagine the perniciousness of global capitalism to be exposed and the culpable to be accused.
