The Virtuality of Reality
Working with form, colour and texture, I am deconstructing the still life genre, as it is traditionally understood in historical and contemporary contexts and across different mediums. Creating illusion is a key aspect of the work which challenges how objects can be seen to be manipulated. I want the viewer to question digital reality. The photographs work individually and within a series. Still life, a traditional form of art, has been transformed into an element of everyday life i.e. advertising, this intrigues me as new and exciting ways of exploring the genre are still being developed, despite a historical background originating in the 17th Century. The process of producing my work is as important as the subject matter itself.
