Artist's Description

Ghost of Christmases Past

This cavernous corrugated iron shed is huge. Once a cathedral of industry it’s now a mausoleum. An empty mausoleum. The machinery has gone, the tools are gone, the workers are gone.

The emptiness echoes… quiet pervades…. except …. there is a whisper … a hint of a memory of a time when life roared here. Raw life that was lived by workers whose toil was inspired by the wish for better, softer times…

A tiny remnant of that wish still remains … the only colour in this massive, dull, space it beams its wishes for yuletide good cheer from a background of glassy grime…..

…. Bah! Humbug!
