My new series of prints Writing Dangerously is inspired by two writers, Mary McCarthy and Arundhati Roy. Both risked everything to tell the truth about unjust, barbaric wars waged by their own governments – McCarthy in Vietnam and Roy in central India. I am interested in the deep connection between people and the land they are prepared to fight for. Writing Dangerously will be exhibited at the HIP Gallery, Princes Quay, Hull during August and September 2018.
