Nigel Shafran - Dad's Office

As the project focuses on my brother who has experienced a serious loss and at times alienation, it seemed important to examine how artist's have conveyed these type of events. Val Williams comments on Nigel Shafran's 'Dad's Office' project; "Nigel Shafran in the Dad's Office series...began to create a particularly anarchic form of still life, which explored loss and alienation. Less interested in the objects themselves than in the lives they describe." (William, 2003: 6)
