“United we are going to put a stamp on Shangri-La. We are reclaiming public space with “subvertisement” and sharing the Truth. In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
Carrie is a self-titled craftivist who works from a mosaic-covered HQ, The Treatment Rooms in West London. Her work blurs the boundaries between craft and activism, using the craft techniques of mural, mosaic and screen-printing to create intricate, highly politicised works of art.
"My earliest recollections of Bob Osborne go back to the autumn of 1972 when we were both first year students at the University of East Anglia. A sandy haired beach boy in a donkey jacket who arrived in Norfolk after exploits in the contrasting arenas of building sites and European travels, Osborne seemed to have a point to prove. From the outset he was always an independent, even rebellious spirit, and his déclassé stance was real for he hailed from gypsy street traders and the rough end of West London Bohemia."- Peter Davies 2001.
