Artist Description

The addition of bouquets of flowers, connotatively domestic and female, works to acknowledge the staunchly masculine and militaristic nature of most of these memorials - the majority being about soldiers or politicians. This destructive and exclusive old boys’ club is examined with wry acknowledgement but certainly not envy.
