Ceremony II is a vigorous drawing of energetic lines that depicts three young boys carrying, what it seems, a giant human in their arms. The snapshot of this playful story brings back images of Gulliver travels, though not sure that this was the artist's intention.

'My approach to painting is playful, with the subject set in a colourful and lively fictional world that may seem absurd or even dreamlike. However, this alternative world connects to our reality as it refers to current political issues that can be seen in Britain and the Western world. This is not brashly shouted out but instead, the artwork silently nods towards these issues that vibrate from the connotations of the imagery' - Luke Vinnicombe
