Phill Hopkins has a voracious appetite for world news and the situations that we as human beings find ourselves subject to. He is interested in how we process global images of conflict that we receive into the domestic. Hopkins uses very ordinary materials, often found or bought at the hardware shop. In Wrapped in Foil (Syria), he has added-in other found materials from the floor of his studio.
