Theresa Bruno is a conceptual artist who works predominantly with found phenomenon. Her practice is primarily engaged with appropriation; using objects and semiotics to generate frames which allow the viewer to break down and challenge the structures which form their daily lives. She is heavily influenced by western consumerism; this being the main thread throughout her work. Playing with surface, she encourages her audience to
re-examine what and how they consume. This critical dialogue creates a higher level of perception and awareness when exploring our relationship with 'things'. The base of her research includes a multitude of topics; at present she is investigating globalisation, ideology, and the ephemeral.
Overall she wants her viewer to question where and how their life fits into each piece. To create a higher sense of critical vision which enables them to digest their daily life differently. To challenge ideologies, reality and the in-between - themselves.
