Artist Statement


On our trip to Italy in 2015, we were queuing for hours to get into St. Paul’s Cathedral.
While waiting patiently I glance into the shadows of one of the entrances to The Vatican and saw this guard, standing perfectly still.
Not moving a muscle or batting an eyelid as the crowds outside were pushing and shoving, trying to progress the long line.
The self-discipline of this man was incredible.
Just performing his duty I guess.

I love the juxtaposition of the colourful, almost jester-like uniform, against the cold stone background of the long corridor.
