The Revenge of a Discarded Friend

This piece of work is some years old now, but because of the nature of its theme it is one I have always wanted to leave in an outdoor situation. I wanted to leave it in a nearby city I had never left a work in before. I chose a spot in central Leeds, on the towpath of the canal (now used for leisure not industry), right under the the central rail station. The ‘Discarded Friend’ is nature, human beings are the ones who turfed it out of their homes in favour of a concrete, plastic and virtual world, but it is an eviction which it doesn’t have the power to permanently enforced.

About John Ledger

A visual Artist, eternal meanderer and obsessive self-reflector by nature, who can’t help but try to interpret everything from within the tide of society. His works predominantly take the form of large scale ballpoint pen landscape drawings and map-making as social/psychological note-making. They are slowly-accumulating responses to crises inflicted upon the self in the perplexing, fearful, empty, and often personality-erasing human world.
