In the small village of Aldworth, in the Berkshire Downs, the legend of the Aldworth Giants: John Long, John Strong, John Never Afraid and John Ever afraid could hold a clue to the towns pre-historic past ………
The installation, ‘the Aldworth Giants’  is an investigation of the stories, symbols and fragmentary facts that we use to try to connect to old ‘mystical’ energies.
Four doors have been covered in wallpaper, whose patterns are constructed from individually, hand-painted motifs.

The Aldworth Giants have made appearances at:

‘The Prosperous Reapers’, Alma Enterprises Gallery, 2005
‘Long Weekend’, The Scholars House, 2005
‘Local’, The Wine Gallery, 2006
