Since the first Alter Piece was exhibited in 2010 at the St Martins MA Interim show, Guy-Watkins has produced five works in the series. Two are now held in private collections, whilst two no longer exist. The fifth was selected as part of the exhibition Signs That Say What You Want Them To Say at Lights Of Soho gallery by Robert Montgomery.

The work is based around the religious and folk lore traditions of lighting candles in remembrance of the dead, whilst using the spelled out phrases to ‘alter’ peoples perspectives of the sentiment.
