Capture at last!

At ¬†Last, its taken months, but the capture series is finished. Nine 40x 40 cm canvases that depict cultural cctv moments from a London centric perspective. “The CCTV camera is the perfect icon for Britain today, summing up the nature of the changing relationship between civil society and political state. They are an innovation in which Britain leads the world both technologically and in usage and are the visible manifestation of so many things which happen out of sight. It is almost impossible to avoid their gaze for an entire day and sitting like steel crows on their perches above us, truly they are emblematic of modern Britain.”¬†Perry de Havilland
