Niece’s Retired Guide Dog (above) echoes these changes in working life - and whilst bonds with our pets may have developed stronger over this time, as we return to our new normal so will theirs – and perhaps it is this change that will be noted the most.
Full of vibrant colours, intricate textures and techniques, Holcroft’s artworks playfully merge the inside/outside spaces of our homes, and some seem reminiscent of Richard Hamilton’s rooms and pop art influences – a reference for changing times.
