About the Work
"State houses, I love them! Solid dependable housing. Build more please!"
- Niki Vernon, ‘My Choice’ March 2023

Working with the tradition of Surrealism and Pop art, Watkins' constructed, ready-made images are, as Gordon H. Brown noted, 'a setting for the banality of conventional life where allusions to the dreams and reality of romance abound'.
