This Little Piggy Went To China Heights

It's been the talk of the week. All over twitter, facebook, frankie and culture blogs, This Little Piggy curated by Rebecca Murphy features 25 artists including myself. Each artist was invited to immortalise a ceramic piggy bank (supplied) through the power of contemporary art. As tempting as it is to spoil my surprise for this Friday's opening, I'm going to encourage that readers come along to the event for some great pieces and some free cider.

My Piggy was a challenge. It took me a while to get used to working with sculpture. Sculpture is a difficult discipline and without spoiling the ending, I pretty much smashed the piggy until it became a painting. It has evolved to become part of the Yellow Line series of my works and it refers to the role we all play in the demise of our loved ones.
