The third and final iteration of this work (formerly Post-Premonitionism 2) has be re-titled equium tumulus sali multiplex. (See the first iteration here, and the second here.)

The ruined city is gone and the white cones of salt now spread throughout the gallery like satelite cities in an inorganic termite colony.

The dodgy Latin of the title equium tumulus sali multiplex is a nod to the naming conventions of science, one of the many strategies we use to attempt to tame and control the natural world.

The work is on show in:
