I Don’t Like Mondays

London-based artist, Ben Turnbull’s wood pieces are among some of my favorites – his fascination with American culture is so fully realized with his desk series, I Don’t Like Mondays. More aggressive than his standard Pop Art aesthetic, Turnbull’s carved-out wood school desks take you back to your school daze. Only my etchings were of the more sophomoric variety. Yet at the core of this series is the now pervading problem of in-school violence, two things that don’t seemingly go together now are starting to seem hand-in-glove.
