An ongoing project centred on ruins and buildings in decay in Portugal struck a chord with a colleague and myself  culminating in an exhibition in July 2016 entitled ‘Trespassing’.   We visited (‘trespassed’)  buildings of historic interest which have been ‘let go’.  Local protestors are keen to preserve many of these buildings and it has become a source of scandal showing that too often commercial interests take precedence over heritage and valuable historic architecture.   In this vein I have worked using photo transfer, collage and mixed media to preserve the moments prior to demotion or restoration.
