  #2 of TOP 12 Artworks of Salon des Refusés 2017 – ‘Escape’ by Richard Brayshaw.

‘In general I am interrogating how we perceive our constructed spaces, both urban and rural, their different characteristics, their influence on our sense of self and our position in the world as well as their psychological effects in exposing our insecurities and vulnerability.

This particular image was made by combing 2 images. It was made as part of a project I am involved with. The group 6plus2 is working on a project called Hold. It is a site responsive project set in the now empty Petersfield police station. Part of my response to being in the cell was to feel trapped and want to escape. This image is a combination of the physical containment of the cell brick wall with the mental escape of imagining a seascape.’ (Richard Brayshaw)
