Creating static works informed by narratives of the moving image, my artistic practice stems from an interest in the illuminated images of cinema, the structured encounters we watch unfold through our screens and the dramatised worlds they present. Often referencing the emotional resonance and cinematic imagery of film, I use ambiguity as a strategy, as well as a tool, from which to reconfigure my selected source material, gathered from both candid second-hand images. Exploring sentiments of intimacy of tenderness through the mediated process of printmaking, I aim to create work that reframes, rearranges and reintroduces visual content through graphic reproduction, repositioning narrative and constructing indistinct realities that entangle fact with fiction.
I am interested in how manipulation can twist or alter emotion, yet through my work hope to generate a natural and sincere response from the viewer, encouraging mis-interpretation and personal elucidation.
