Delighted to be part of Small Print International 6
In response to the first Aerogramme this photo etching combines text, a honing pigeon and an aerogramme stamp.
The text, sending love from me to you, is a reflection and response to the Brexit vote and the unease within the UK with the undercurrent of anti-European, anti-Irish, and anti ‘other’ sentiment. The text is a hand of friendship, warmth and the human need for others.
The choice of stamp is reference to the aerogramme and how this airletter made the world a smaller place.
The honing pigeon is a reference to how people have needed to send messages and communicate with others for centuries.
