Patrick Fenech

A mid career artist based in Malta and London, Patrick J Fenech will be showing some new works with photography from his new collection called 'Blister, Re-worked'. These images represent plastic packages or 'blister' which originally contained children's toys and through a modification process which involves the use of fire, water, ice and sometimes bathing in milk; as a result of their newly acquired contextual rebirth, find themselves components in unexpectedly provocative new idenities.
