Further information:
"Political photomontage at the pointy end in the manner of John Heartfield. A design reminiscent of the Constructivists. Here photomontage is the pit bull of the arts. This is both a demarcation point and a summation of earlier work which allows a new direction to enter my artistic practice." Peter Lyssiotis
