'The Pearl Story' Screenprint
Hand printed two colour screenprint in grey/green and black.
'The pearls Story. Way down deep below the chaos of the crashing waves, down on the ocean floor where all is quiet and still. There in the darkness we grew as we slept for years locked tight inside our rocky little homes, not a soul in the world knew that we were even there. It was the very secret of our unknown existence that made us precious and that beauty died the moment we were discovered and our shells finally and brutally prised open. We were sold into slavery to shackled along a golden chain and end up drained around your pale and slender neck to be admired by the entire town.
Our misery was now complete. And even though we were resigned to our new life of agonising daily public scrutiny there was still one more surprise to come'
