This work is a psychological response to the current climate in the United Kingdom. The democratically mandated break from the European Union is being frustrated by many in politics and by many more who work in the media culture. The democratic process of our very nation has been taken hostage and held in contempt by those who call themselves progressive or liberal. This has become a national shame and as an artist I felt called to comment on the toxic climate. Within the adapted germanic “Durer” font grow various types of mushrooms and fungi. As a part of nature ourselves we all share a symbiotic relationship with fungi. I have chosen to depict the mushrooms speaking the truth throughout this artwork. Mushrooms grow in a mycelial network and need certain key conditions to be in place in order to thrive. Mushrooms actively select their allied organisms like certain trees and form guilds to manage the digestion of dangerous pathogens. I use them as a metaphor here for the majority of British people who are in conflict with foreign powers seeking to impose on the rights of British people and ignoring their right to self determination and the sacred notion of sovereignty.
