Edd Pearman’s work uses uniforms as a metaphor for group identity. His depiction of individuals disbanded from their uniformed groups presents a view of a melancholy, vulnerable loner. This is given a further twist with an appearance of happiness in the smiling youth of Whilst I Breathe, I Hope in the exhibition.  However, this joyful smile carries a feeling of disengagement with reality and a manic attempt to happiness.
