Consignment: Batch 35 unit 2
oil on panel
From an ongoing series of paintings on a theme of human trafficking: referencing the high risk strategies employed in acts of global transmigration, either voluntary or coerced, and those situations into which people are willing to place themselves and/or others, in the [often vain] hope of improving their economic circumstances. The paintings and prints are all square in format, with dimensions ranging from 8cm to 92cm, and have all been painted and designed to hang any way up." The project has been constructed from multiple series of works which share the same dimensions, medium and specific colour range. These are grouped as batches and are individually file numbered rather than given titles, to emphasise the objectification of the subject; humanity reduced to mere commodity.
