Finished works for Acid Drop Copse “The Somme”

A  World War One boot embedded in wax crops entitled  “Legitimised Contempt for Individual Life” is an expression of my personal response to the raw horror of the battlefield.  A solitary body part and name tag lie alone in a burnt field, since destroyed by the ravages of war, echoing the beauty of what is no more.
