Dingle 80s montage finishedDingle 80s montageDrawing some key images from the period for the inside cover. Very interested in playing with the sequential properties of panel shapes here. Memories don’t have a single chronological narrative, they overlap and fall over each other somewhat, a shifting interrelationship. Hopefully, that comes across, even in this work in progress.

Thatcher and Khomeini are particularly important because it was during this period we saw a decisive shift toward the right politically, a rejection of socialist ideas in the West and the return of a fundamentalist Shia Islamic theocracy in Iran. These two movements have profoundly affected our lives in the decades since.
