Resurrection is a revival of the style and technique of artist Edouard Manet (1832 - 1883). Manet's paintings spoke out about contemporary social issues and he was inspired by photography and Renaissance paintings. The context of Resurrection reveals a taste for survival, reflecting current social anxieties about technology, environment, health and corruption. It is a series of portraits of people who have had a long term experience with homelessness. It questions the permanency of the home and incorporates a study of how the current government's benefits crackdown is affecting poorer people. Each person pictured became very close to death, before being helped by local council services for the homeless, and was ultimately given a home - but for how long?
