common wealth

This series of work sets out to play with notions of the common wealth shared by the inhabitants of Glasgow City, with specific focus on some of the unique architecture located in the City Centre and the redevelopment and regeneration work currently being undertaken


Mainly explored through observational studies, focusing on the beauty of the buildings that are fading fast in our memories, be that either through them being erased completely in the name of regeneration, redevelopment, or a genuine blind oversight as to what they are really worth in terms of tourist pulling power and sustaining a healthy, vibrant, creative and inspiring living space for the local inhabitants


This body of work, drawn together through small clusters of lines and dots, hovers a meditative question in front of the viewers face and asks them to respond
