Art Description

Printmaking: Pinhole and Digital on Other.

Limited edition of 8 (plus 1 AP) monumental pinhole print on duratran transparency. With signed and numbered certificate of authenticity.


The Oxford English Dictionary describes ‘digital' as ‘signals or data, a series of the digits 0 and 1, represented by values of a physical quantity such as voltage or magnetic polarisation. Often contrasted with analogue’.

#Venus is a pinhole photograph of a nude in the classical style of Venus. Venus sits behind a digital layer of words describing contemporary interpretations of the word digital. The words are separated by hashtags; metadata tags used on social media and originally used in computer programming to denote code with special meaning.

The work contains old and new world symbolism. Venus, allegorical symbol of femininity is used as a metaphor for antiquity, contrasted with contemporary, text-based digital content, creates a tension between past and present.
