Caught in the Crossfire.

Paper sculpture of Coventry city center.

Coventry by Matthew Picton.

Just saw the Caught in the Crossfire show at The Herbert in Coventry. It’s a really powerful exhibition of artistic responses to conflict, peace and reconciliation featuring work by a range of artists including Banksy and Jonathan Barnbrook. The standout pieces for me were the large-scale paper sculptures by Matthew Picton (pictured) highlighting the impact of war on Coventry and other cities.

Update: Matthew has a new ebook out featuring some fascinating examples of his work. Get it here: http://store.blurb.com/ebooks/paaaa7e571a41b3027e11
