Welcome to the BattleLines Redrawn Project

The exhibition will be from the 18th October - 25th November 2018 at Cornerstone Arts Centre, Didcot, Oxfordshire.

The Battlelines Redrawn Project is a study of how some of the battlefields of the First World War have REGENERATED over the last century.

My focus centres on the landscapes of the Ypres Salient and The Somme and references works by War Artists Paul Nash and William Orpen and the poet and writer John Masefield.
