Ainscough's latest work experiments with the manipulation of imagery, scale, reality, humour and viewer participation; gauging whether this alters perceptions of the subject matter “Glorification of War”. Underpinning this is the subtext of the indoctrination of children through toys, primarily Airfix soldiers and model kits, the influence for this theme came from Malcom Morley’s links between art, toys and nostalgia.
