From the typewriter bombers to the flag poem Callaghan’s early works on paper are either an anti-war protest or a homage to conceptual art movements. Visual poetics – the word or the semaphore alphabet is also the image.
Callaghan’s fascination with cultural imagery around death, focused sharply by his personal battle with mortality were the impetus for this series. Part self-portrait and completely a defiant putting face to death in an explosion of colour.
