Statement from Tully
‘Over the past few months my time in Liverpool has allowed me to stew on the citys grand past and it’s current environment. The work has tried to encapsulate some of these elements from the cities halcyon shipping days to describing it’s current army of youths plastered in branded clothing. Add some decrepit surfaces and architecture of the city and I feel as though the work I have made is like a show bag that I have put together, that best describes how the city of Liverpool has effected me. The good and the ugly. As a result I have a bag of goodies that I can chew on for some time yet.’
