The Billy Sweet2022
The Billy Sweet was commissioned by the Norwich Bid team as part of their emerging artists program for the Love Light Norwich Festival, 2022.
The Billy Sweet is constructed from 8mm, 5mm and 3mm acrylic and features an elaborate floral design etched across its surface. The piece is under lit by LED's which causes the design to bloom from the objects surface.
The title refers to a type of mortar that is mixed with dirt and detritus. Consequently the mortar never truly sets. Commonly used in the construction of inner city slums across the UK during the industrial revolution.
