Inkling #6

This artwork is from a series 'Inklings' I made in my studio over the course of the Covid lockdowns. The series came about due to the lack of availability of materials at the time and so I recycled stuff already in my studio, bar the Chinese plastic oranges, which I shipped in from China (around the same time that Covid-19 was imported into the UK). My intention was to produce works that were to be exhibited for an exhibition in Hastings after the end of the lockdowns. The title of the series 'Inklings' was reference to the English word which means 'premonition'. All the works in the series took the form of a basic white-painted plywood support structure, to which I added narrative elements using a variety of materials and techniques. Inkling #6 features a profusion of tumescent Chinese plastic display oranges.
