AUGUSTUS AND EDIE, 2016
This artwork is inspired by ‘The Story of Augustus’ by Heinrich Hoffmann, 1798-1874, a tale of a plump and hearty boy who would not eat his soup. Day after day the young lad pushes his food away until he ‘scarcely weighs a sugar plum’. The poem ends in tragedy. I have written a parody of ‘Augustus’, a tale of ‘Edie’, a bright and glowing pearl’ who refuses to eat….
