Observing the recent regeneration of the City of Liverpool I was struck by what was lost and gained. Some research made me aware of how things are constantly lost to us, why they are no longer part of our world and how these ‘lost’ items influence our current situation. My solo exhibition, 15 September to 15 October, at the Quaker Meeting House Q Cafe for this year’s Independents Biennial is entitled Ghost of the Past – Shadow of the Past. The pieces are small and although 2D the front of the work has an item, such as Liverpool’s castle or a Duke of Cumberland butterfly (extinct) with an appropriate painting of our current world behind it on which it casts a shadow. The work helps the observer to realise what part they play in evolution. The exhibition will move to Heswall Library from 20 – 27 October as part of the Heswall Arts Festival.
