Dad's Army

I’ve completed ten works on paper based on the concrete and wood fragments I discovered at the old Mare Island Naval Base.
Because of the slightly ramshackle military bearing of these pieces I have named them after the characters in an old British sitcom called Dad’s Army which is about the Home Guard in an English coastal town during the Second World War.
