Prison Fights is a series of works initially started in a notebook at my dayjob. Scribbles, coffee and Tippex. I was thinking about my friend Steven’s recently published collection of poetry Fights and researching pictures and stories of guys getting into prison fights – in knowledge of Steve’s to-be-published collection Minimum Security Prison Dentistry.
Prison Fights started augmenting. The characters painted in larger formats and methods of printing experimented with.
This evening some will be on display at the book launch for Minimum Security Prison Dentistry at The Horse Hospital. Violence isn’t only physical.
