Here We Are
Here We Are is a suite of ten digital paintings made in response to a commission by South Liverpool Homes for a public artwork involving residents and community groups to mark the building of new housing developments in Speke and Allerton.
The paintings, which are also designed to be fully-functioning postcards, celebrate the rich mix of 'landscapes' of South Liverpool: industrial, residential, natural, agricultural, political and historical. The imagery is drawn directly from these sources and, where applicable, proportionally accurate scale dimensions and authentic period colours have been used.
The title of the work, Here We Are, conveys a sense of place, of arrival and of homecoming.
The 'postcard paintings' were presented as a loose-bound pack to be distributed to current and future tenants of South Liverpool Homes.
