BA Fine Art

My work is often dark and unsettling. I combine old Victorian or Edwardian photos with surreal elements to create a new unnerving image. I’m interested in the idea of using the past to reflect the present. Many of my pieces are intended to reflect what is going on in the world today. I’m also interested in incorporating horror elements to create an image. What we fear often reveals what we find important. We fear anonymity because we care about being recognised as a person by our peers. We fear loss because we care about the things we hold dear. In these uncertain times I think that it’s important to examine these fears in order to show what we truly care about.
