ARTIST OF THE MONTH
About The Art
Mixed Media + Digital Works
Collage is a key element of my work. My physical collages contain an array of materials such as watercolour, pencil, screen-print and oil pastel. My digital collages contain elements of my physical drawings and layers of digital manipulation of historical pieces. My aim is to see how materials, textures, and effects respond to one another, in the physical and the digital. Alongside this, I also create digitally manipulated imagery using my own photography from gallery and museum visits.
About The Artist
I am a third year Painting and Drawing BA Hons student at the University of Northampton. My work explores the manipulation and reinterpretation of Historical art and sculpture, and how these works can be contrasted and adapted within the contemporary world. I choose particular artworks to appropriate because there is a story behind them worth exploring. I am trying to create a physicality with these images, with an element of impurity and hybridity as it spans across historical periods.
