I am a visual artist. My digital practice is strongly underpinned by the aesthetics of painting, and is informed by art history, cultural studies and sociology.
Title: Apocalypse Teatime
This no-budget, lo-fi, Pop Art style digital collage is made from low-res stock photos found on the internet. All the images are manipulated using second-hand Photoshop Elements 7.
Theme: the vintage mirror remembers the domestic dysfunction and thwarted aspirations it has witnessed throughout its rural and suburban lifetime from pre-1940s to the present day. The mirror first belonged to my father's mother and came to the Wirral when the family moved here in the fifties. The mirror has experienced at least 4 addresses and must be over 80 years old.
