New Mills Fest Arts Trail (2016)
Exhibiting Light Blue Tears (2016) is part of a larger body that confronts the American Holocaust through play, utilising the non-pc plastic Cowboy and Indian figures that is loaded with negative a racist connotations, having been played with generations of children who are unaware of the history in their hands. Using these figures and the expanded play-set language a more honest history is played out. Using the colours of the figures to define nations they each play out events loosely based on 19th century history. Light Blue Tears looks at the forced relocation of the Plains Indian to reservations.
