In an article in Vanity Fair in 2012, the journalist A. A. Gill suggests that if ever there was an image of our time, ‘The Scream’ by Edvard Munch is it. ‘It grasps us like the mad fortune-teller gripping a palm. It is a glyph, graffiti of angst and dislocation, emblematic of this topsy-turvy compassless era. The image may seem to be very us, very now.’

In Reconstructions, four androgynous figures stand on a bridge, mouth agape, eyes piercing with shock. In the background, a blood-red sky. The text bears reference to themes and topics from across the art world and cultural history, and artists and philosophers such as Edvard Munch, Leonard Cohen and Soeren Kierkegaard. Loneliness and anxiety are recurring themes.
