Funeral of John F. Kennedy, 25th November 1963.

Photographs of the Kennedy family.
Circle cutouts and colour photocopy and re-photographed.
I have recently become interested in icons and how they are portrayed at particular moments in time; that are very specific to that individual. I have been using the images of JFK's funeral as I recently found an original copy of National Geographic magazine that contained the whole funeral in photographs.

The Presidential family and The Oval Office.
Colour photocopy, circle cutter.

The Flag over the Casket of JFK, with assorted world leaders.
Colour photocopy, felt tip.

Venice Postcards

Postcard views of famous Venetian landmarks that I haven't visited, but would love to one day. I am interested in the subtle re-working of the surface, by cutting and re-forming the image.

I have been working on a series of ideas this week, seem unable to settle to one set of works, so I have decided to work on all my ideas at once. So; I have been reconfiguring post cards of places I would like to live and do live, Venice and Ipswich, respectively ; I have been working on a series based on a National Geographic magazine I found of President Kennedy's funeral (this mainly involves counting the people in the cortege) and producing works for a zine in the USA called Abalcabal.
