We All Fall Down

Collection of Works

Nursery rhymes are innocent songs that young children often sing when playing with friends or family… or are they? Through printmaking and ceramics, I have re-created narratives taken from historical research; the true meaning and often vicious events that are behind these playful lyrics.

I have used bright child-like colours to mock these unforeseen events that inspired these nursery rhymes. Furthermore, I have created ‘toys’ from each lino-print to present the truth behind the nursery rhymes and address the innocence and obliviousness of young children who are interacting with these from a young age.
