The Dead Scribble on Walls

‘The Dead Scribble on Walls’ re-imagines a melancholic shadow cast by the First World War. The work explores a trans-generational connection to a legacy of embodied grief in which the desire to counter the risk of forgetting is mediated through the obligation of the artist to express empathy.

This fragile act of expression traces memory and mourning through the writings of William Morris, Edmund Blunden and Ivor Gurney. Throughout Wilfred Owen’s “The eternal reciprocity of tears” remains a central theme. The imperative of the practice is to reflect on how narratives of loss maybe repositioned and reconfigured in retrieval through painting.
