Sunken Garden Mural, Institute Of Criminology, Cambridge 2019

The Mural was commissioned to mark the Institute Of  Criminology’s 60th Anniversary since it was established by Professor Radzinowicz in 1959. Following an Artist Residency in HMP Whitemoor last summer where I worked on murals in two areas. 

A short film capturing the project can be found on the linked Wordpress page about the Mural.

The Heart featured in the branches, was made in Memory of Jack & Saskia, on the Friday marking Three months since their murders at London Bridge.

 

 

Art Workshop Facilitator at Learning Together Alumni event, 2018

Inspired by the LearningTogether Alumni  subject, created by Jack & Gareth:

… ‘Digital Technology in Prisons’, we explored… Transgression or Transformation? The Triumphs, or Treachery of Technology, Concepts Caught Creatively in Collage… The printing press was a technology of its time, reflecting on the points we discussed and opinions shared, works of art were created that illustrated our thinking in the current digital technological age. Reflecting on the disadvantages to individuals with little experience of technology re-entering a society bound by it.

 

Artists Residency in HMP Whitemoor

2 days/week for 12 weeks plus additional days during Therapy Break, Sessions took place across F-Wing & D-Wing (c.100hrs)

"our first session concluded with a reflection on Alfred Wallis’ work: using Kettle’s Yard’s excellent learning resources, many found comfort in his seascapes, the soothing tones and thoughts of voyages to (not so) distant lands. In the session we made origami boats, which they decorated and named. We thought about where their boat might take them and for many, the destination was home."

Roy’s in contrast were taken around Lincoln during the recent deluge of snow, giving an almost monochrome appearance to this beautiful city.
