Two Minute Memorial

The “Two Minute Memorial” was made during a residency at the National Memorial Arboretum (Lichfield, UK) in 2018.

Inspired by the two-minute silence that takes place daily at the NMA, this work reflects on how time expands as we are present in the moment, and explores an alternative ‘memorial’ of paper, ink and watercolour paint. It is 230cms x 113cms.

Exhibited for “Making Peace” alongside Jacky Oliver, Lizzie Hughes and Christopher Taylor from 14th November – 3rd March 2019, this work forms a response to the commemorations on the occasion of 100 years since the Armistice for WW1.

I’m pleased to report that this work has been profiled in The Printmaking Ideas Book by Frances Stanfield and Lucy McGeown.
