Ricky Romain explores the questions of collective responsibility, ethical journalism and political accountability.

Axminster artist Ricky Romain explores the questions of collective responsibility, ethical journalism and political accountability at his latest exhibition.

Entitled ‘Keeping Quiet’ it will be staged at the Town Mill Gallery, in Lyme Regis, from July 28 to August 15.

Ricky’s imagery is semi figurative and is inspired by human rights.

He has exhibited nationally and internationally and has often been connected to unique artistic collaborations outside the usual gallery setting.

These have included venues that reflect this theme, including the headquarters of Amnesty International, in London, the chambers of Michael Mansfield QC, London, The European Court of Human Rights building, Strasbourg and Matrix Chambers, London.

His images have been used to inform academic publications and conferences, particularly in connection with asylum and immigration issues.
