Mergers and Monopolies

In August 2011, Edinburgh College of Art was merged with the University of Edinburgh. What this meant for me was that the short courses department I coordinated at ECA was closed and its course programme were brought under management of University. This was a long and painful process where histories, legacies and procedures clashed. This subject became the catalyst of an outpouring of manic drawings as ideas developed and changed my approach to picture making.
