“Cold Change “.

by timpughartist

The temporary artwork was created in response to the referendum vote on wether the U.K. should stay or leave the E.U. I was saddened and shocked by the result and in response, created a series of artworks using mirrors and mixed media. I drew out a map of the UK  directly onto the surface of a mirror with a sharpie pen and infilled the map with text from my poll card. The mirror was then placed in the sea and I photographed the effects of the tide depositing the sand across the map. The resulting image resembled a weather map depicting a North Westerly airstream hence the title “Cold Change”.This I saw equally as a metaphor for the changes and uncertain future that will affect the U.K. as a result of the referendum vote to leave the E.U.
