The Devil Plays Sax biro on paper  2012

The Devil Plays Sax: Biro Drawing for La Dia Muerte, Drawers Gallery (November 2012)

Invited by Kirsty Harris I contributed this biro drawing to the exhibition at Drawers Gallery in The Haggerston Pub. The brief was to riff of themes of The Mexican festival Day Of The Dead. It made me think of unlicensed and improvised social gatherings in the middle of the night; carnal and possibly dangerous, taking  place in unclaimed spaces. The spirits of dead relatives and dead wishes swirl in the air, around a wild woman handling snakes.
