The Banal Lapses of Heroes

The Banal Lapses of Heroes is a collection of prints, drawings, paintings and sculptures that reconstruct and reimagine narratives, playing with the themes of collective memory to externalise hidden emotions.

Each piece in the collection is underpinned with archetypes and symbolic gesture to immerse the viewer into the emotive language of such symbolism across the history of painting and it's function.
