Ha Ha Bonk

2018

A series of 6 large scale drawings with idiom titles, collaging satirical political cartoons from the 19th century to the present day. The cartoon images, an homage to the skill and wit of cartoonists, are layered with anatomical and bodily drawings – hearts, guts, shoulders and tiny birthing women advancing across the paper.

The multi-layered drawings express the overwhelming and disorientating experience generated by our 24hour news-feed culture – fake news, data harvesting, pollution, climate crisis, privelege, war and refugee crises, fascism, xenophia, Brexit, privitisation and austeriy.

Individual titles:
Neck and crop
Gut feelings
Half hearted
Close to the bone
The eye of the beholder
Shouldering the burden
