It’s the opening of the Art of Remembering exhibition at the Rheged Centre, Penrith this evening.  My Hearts and sandbags piece is finally installed and I’m looking forward to seeing the rest of the work in situ.  What I have seen being delivered is wonderful.  I’m really pleased and honoured to be included in this show.  I hope you get a chance to go and see it in person.

It’s on from the 20th September until the 23rd November  and will open every day from 10.30am till 4.30pm.

The hearts are strung on khaki tapes and D rings as if parachuting down

some of the sandbags have been printed and stitched with trench imagery. Others are created in domestic vintage fabrics.

the stitched words on the sandbag ‘fox hole’ read “Dulce et Decorum est Pro patria Mori” which can be roughly translated as is sweet and fitting to die for your country.
