'Show and Tell'
The New Art Gallery Walsall

18 April - 9 July 2011

'Show and Tell', was a three month residency at The New Art Gallery Walsall, which culminated in the production of a series of large-scale charcoal portraits that depicted members of the public who visited the gallery.
One of the main distinguishing features of this approach was the use of the gallery walls as a canvas for the works. In this light, the execution of the drawings directly onto the walls of the gallery, and their subsequent erasure, was used as a device to make reference to and further explore the impermanence and shifting nature of the identity.
