Thanatoses - 1502

"Thanatoses - 1502"
This work is on show in New York , at the Emily Harvey Foundation as part of the "Little book about Death" Exhibition. The work forms part of a book of postcard images. To learn more about this show visit

I have been a practising artist for the last 15 years. I
studied my MA at Central St. Martins where I became obsessed
with the idea of being able to represent death. My
recent work concerns the personification of death and its
surrounding rituals. I have been working with found
imagery surrounding the sinking of HMS Lusitania where my
Great-Grandfather lost his life.

I would like to thank Anabelle Dover-Eade for the Lusitania image.
