New Media: Digital, New Media, digital collage on Paper.
Carl makes work that sits on that fine line between comedy and tragedy with a pinch of the absurd,
The Animals Pretending to be Other Animals series was inspired by the virtual world where people create their own avatars, making them as fantastical or as ‘real life’ as desired. These are places where true identity, gender, class or race are concealed and one can present oneself as excessively or conservatively as the games parameters allow.
Reduced it to its base level, in the virtual world we are all ‘animals pretending to be something or someone else’. Another point of view would be that are all extending ourselves, our identities, into role playing in real life, males can play females, females play males, gender doesn't have to mean anything and it can also mean everything, all relevant to the person role-playing and creating the avatar.
Digitally created and printed onto Hahnemuhle 310gsm FineArt paper with pigment inks.
