'You Say You Want A Revolution' was a joint exhibition held over two venues in Blackpool during April 2014.
Ever since I was a student I have used song titles and song lyrics as titles for my work. Usually this comes after the work is finished and the title can either be a throw away joke, mean nothing at all, or used to give the work an extra layer for the viewer to interpret.
For this group of work I decided to use the song titles as a starting point and create a body of work influenced by one album. I chose The Beatles iconic ‘White Album’, a record full of vivid imagery and unusual characters. Some of the pieces are more literal in their use of the source material, some more abstract.
