Paintings About Gaza
Unframed works on paper simply pinned to the walls of the shed. Accessible yet challenging, confronting us with current conflicts that are happening around us in Syria, Ukraine, Gaza and Iraq.
Phill Hopkins can’t think of a time when his work wasn’t influenced by news stories and world events around him. The work he’s making now reminds him of the work he made in his late teens, when Thatcher and Reagan were in power. He is interested in how we process images, often of war and conflict, in a domestic setting; trying to make sense of how we encounter, question and then attempt to make some sort of response.
