Connection & Trauma – Photographs from the Home Lad Home Exhibition
Last week the Home Lad Home exhibition opened at St Barbe Museum and Art Gallery, with a visit from Michael Morpurgo (author of War Horse) and Joey the War Horse puppet. It was fitting that Michael was able to come along and see the work that I and the students had produced, as it was the War Horse production touring to Southampton that was the stimulus for the whole project, and in turn my commission as project artist in residence.
Here are a few images of my commissioned work ‘Connection and Trauma’, made up of separate pieces made at the site of the Romsey Remount Centre, at St Barbe, and in my studio in response to time spent with the horses at Kingsettle stables on the Wilts/Hants border.
