Art Description

Collage: Paper, Acrylic, Paint on Canvas, Paper.

If I should stay
I would only be in your way
So I'll go but I know
I'll think of you each step of the way
And I will always love you
And I will always love you
Bittersweet memories
That's all I have, and all I'm taking with me
So goodbye, please don't you cry
'Cause we both know I'm not what you need
And I will always love you
I will always love you
I hope life treats you kind
(Dolly Parton “I Will Always Love You”)

ORIGINAL MIXED MEDIA

As I was collecting materials for this piece, the stilettos reminded me of Dolly Parton, whose seminal song “I Will Always Love You” came to mind and the work evolved then using elements that fitted the song. Whitney Houston subsequently made this song famous in her movie “The Bodyguard.”

Continuing on my path of human exploration - Our fellow humans can be both strange and exciting at the same time. We have evolved to be expert in masking our feelings at times but our actions and behaviours often give us away.

Controlled chaos, humour and surprise are all merged in my mixed media works.

Often appearing playful at first, my works endeavour to visually express my understanding about existence in the 21st century and references to the past. My work aims to examine society’s lusts and desire with fortune and fame and, consequentially, to highlight our insecurities.

Using mixed media allows me to combine recognizable figures from all walks of life, iconographic or cartoon characters with other seemingly mundane objects or paper. Through this, I attempt to expose the dark reality behind the glossy facade. The images and media used often act as a representation of a consumer-driven dream world behind which lies layers of a more brutal reality.

This work is inspired by the works of Joseph Cornell, Max Ernst and Nick Bantock. I look toward artists prepared to do the unexpected, to push the envelope or include images or concepts, sometimes totally unrelated, to arrive at a final work. As a result, there is always a sense of spontaneity and urgency when constructing my mixed media works. Following my first instincts gives me the best results. My goal always is to construct interesting and challenging images which draws the viewer inward.

Practical information - this mixed media collage is fully sealed with acrylic varnish for protection and is ready to hang.
