The Consignment series developed from an initial theme of escapology into a meditation on social environment. A figure physically enclosed within the confines of a frame suggests both cell & refuge of hiding place. Here it's employed as a visual metaphor for the individual as an object. A sense of anonymity is integral to the ambience of this series; lighting was arranged to cast shadows obscuring individuality. An already anonymous figure is reduced to a mere human commodity through the use of a wholly dispassionate titling system whereby a painting becomes a "unit" & any units of a particular size become a "batch". The whole total of units produced becomes the "Consignment". A rare timeless piece of profound political commentary. The paintings are square in format and have been designed to hang any way up. Framed and glazed.
