Why did it have to rain today

We’ve had a lot of rain in the UK recently (2012 was the second wettest on record or something like that), so rain has been a lot on my mind so it’s probably no surprise that I made this piece of work.

I used parakeets and a map charting the rainfall in the British Isles.  There are a lot of parakeets living in London, they seem to thrive despite the cold and rain.  They always seems slightly incongruous and exotic to be living in London.

The piece is for sale though TAG Fine Arts, click here to see more and buy.
