4 Day Echo Chamber, 2019

Following the long tradition of artists that explore the idea of ‘home’, my collages explore what this might mean in an increasingly virtual world. I begin by ‘mapping’ my surroundings using minimal photography, before fragmenting, digitally distorting and re-composing these as abstract artworks. The result is a vivid abstraction, but on closer inspection, is full of intimately familiar textures and forms.

Windows, doorways, and curtains are common motifs that mark the tension between inside and outside, sanctuary and territory. My work depicts maze-like compositions of liminal spaces, portals and thresholds: the points of boundary and change.  The weave of a curtain dissolves into pixels while the view through a window reveals nothing. I use veils of vivid colour, distilled from the distorted pixels themselves, to blend the real with the imagined.  

 

I am drawn to things that show traces of human action over time: the layers of paint and wallpaper, or the marks on a bedsheet or folds of a curtain. These are symbols of narratives becoming distorted, entrenched and even oppressive over time. They reflect the often fragmented nature of the ways in which we pass on and take in information in the digital age.
