Jez was commissioned in 2015 by the House of Commons (UK) as part of the Festival of Freedoms, celebrating 750 years of Parliament in the UK, and highlighting specific pieces of legislation which had significant impact. The first number in the edition is in the permanent collection of the Parliamentary Art collection. Further editions have been collected for the permanent collections by The Walker Art Gallery Liverpool and the British Museum. The artwork is now available to buy.

The work takes two pages of the recommendations of the Report of the Departmental Committee on Homosexual Offences and Prostitution (1957), better known as the Wolfenden Report, and partly translates the document into Polari, which would have been at the height of its usage during that period.

The artwork comprises two separate screen-printed, hand torn pages. Watermark lower left corner of left hand page. Each page 38 x 27 cm, four deckle edges (in an edition of 57). Signed lower right corner, numbered lower left corner. Printed on Zerkall 145 gsm mould made paper, cream smooth, using Lascaux Studio acrylic inks. Hand screen-printed by the artist at Hotbed Press, Salford, UK.

Framing can be arranged on request. Full framing instructions supplied.
