The work was made as part of Jez’s artist-in-residence programme with the exhibition: Derek Jarman – PROTEST! at Manchester Art Gallery (Dec 2nd 2021 – April 10th 2022). The work utilises two pages from The Polari Bible (Leviticus Ch.1 – 3) and a quote from Derek Jarman. The text in (Ultramarine) references the artist Yves Klein, and his influence on Jarman, their shared interest in the void, the spiritual, and the power of colour, specifically blue.
