About

Artist Hew Locke is represented in the Tate Collection by Vita, Veritas, Victoria 2007, a wall-spanning installation made of beads, cord and gaffer tape. We met him at Hales Gallery in East London where he was finishing off another such work, the grand-scale, gallery-filling ‘Nameless’. In this film Locke describes how his distinctive style came about - “it was born out of necessity” - and explains his obsession with heraldry and Britishness. Hew Locke: ‘The Nameless’ is at Hales Gallery until 17 October 2010
