I have been working on the idea of markets changing from being places to replenish store stock,  to places to consume luxuries – if wealthy enough. The work I’ve been making has been focused on the produce which is consumed as a luxury (I’ve used flowers as examples a lot) rather than the consumers themselves. In order to change this I’ve decided to reference some of the drawings I did of the people in Collumbia Road Flower Market carrying their purchases.

In drawing the people in black ink and the flowers (consumption) in bright colours I aim to  address the idea that the markets are losing their thrive and becoming more and more about what we purchase and how much money we spend.
