Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

My art practice fuses historical painting techniques and digital technology. Each painting is composed of fragments of photographs from a variety of sources which are compiled in photoshop to form an entirely new image, then painted on canvas. The final image could include a face from an 1890's studio portrait, a dress found in the pages of a fashion magazine, the arm and handbag of the Queen of England digitally cut from a news photo. The chosen fragments are combined to reflect a strong and complex psychological portrait. I am influenced by folk art and fairy tales and Jungian psychology . I am interested in examining the social construction of normality and otherness and in how this division has informed art and culture. My art practice sits at the intersection between the resurgence of figurative, skill based art and art that is the locus of social issues.
