Additional Information: Accompanying artist statement: I have always had a natural talent for the visual spoonerism…being unfashionably late to the conceptual party, the wrong end of the stick or the sore end of the pineapple. It seems only appropriate that throughout my preparations for the series at Mailbox I end up with an alphabet soup. This came about as I was looking at vignettes, postcards, Punch and Judy and 19th century street imagery around boxes and narrow spaces…a time when people were literally 'boxed' . Via a circuitous route this series owes part of its narrative dialogue to pastiche, a narrative that is both individual and the sum of its parts- an alphabet as designed by a Victorian absinthe drinker
