Ambush

A series of 20 pencil drawings on thin hand made Indian paper in a variety of sizes. Ten or more are 38cm x 51cm whilst others are elongated horizontally to evoke the idea of the wall painting or frieze. As this series develops Sykes concentrates on front line victims co-opted into the service of war by structures of power. Through media coverage, current battlefields become one with false notions and legends of former times displayed in early American films. Drawing the comic turmoil of cowboy games of war, the fixed, funny and formal postures of the perpetrators revolve slowly in the mythical morass to reveal more realistic, believable figures of contemporary soldiers and civilians, children and animals, in attack or surrender stance. Historic versions of mounted warriors from the Bayeaux Tapestry or medieval battlefields occur to echo the never- ending repetition of human warfare. more…
