image: a black line drawing isolated in the centre of an oversize page. The drawing depicts a male figure lying unconscious on the ground with his wrists bound around the neck of a uniformed woman. She straddles him, leaning forward with her palms on the ground. A cloud of smoke and flames rises from her back.
This drawing is part of a series produced by the artist following the discovery of a book called 'First Aid To The Injured' and the artist's subsequent research at the Imperial War Museum. Through a process of re-drawing the artist manipulates and combines these instructive illustrations to explore traces of the surreal in modern mechanised conflict.
from a set of 28 Untitled drawings exhibited at the museum in 1999: 'Heavier Than Air'
