Images of mass culture transfigure under my vision. I create these collages to recontextualise the world in which I am under heavy influence of. Celebrating the beauty of image making and using a baroque artistic style with contemporary found magazine photographs I create a critique on the society's obsession with the illusion of luxury lifestyles. Yet the work says as little as the magazines they are torn from, concentrating on repeat patterns and styles, they lure the audience with their glamour. Falling short of having a strong critical voice they appear only to remind us how easily we can be seduced by exquisite images, allowing our eyes to trace over perfectly placed curves and lines and them be left with the emptiness of having loved but not comprehended what was beheld.
