Exhibition Opening
Monday 28th May, 5:30pm

A twelve-year-old girl tramping across war-ravaged Europe, through refugee camps, across the Middle East, knowing hunger, rape, despair – this was the making of Modesty Blaise. She wanted the security of money and got it. In every worthwhile place she organised The Network, a crime organisation, efficient, deadly.

She took Willie Garvin from the gutter and turned him into her right-hand man – a man as deadly and professional as herself. They made their money and retired. But where was the excitement? Now on the right side of the law for once, they pit themselves against vicious schemers who play for very high stakes… ruthlessly.

My work follows on from this converting the original 1960’s drawings into paintings that tap into today’s woes of living in a society ‘on the edge’.
