Tower Hamlets Creatures

White sheep or black sheep? And who’s the black sheep: the sheep in the foreground? The corporate power in the background? I like the complexity of this image which at a first glance doesn’t seem complex at all. And it makes me think of the discussions all around me about the riots in London: the temptation to divide into black & white and find easy answers when in fact things are so very complex, layered and possibly uncomfortable. I wonder: how many of us find and if only a faintly that the word “riot” resonates somewhere deep inside?
