Artist statement: Fed up of writing these!
Summary for those who want to know:
Part 1: Transforming a scene with the camera.
These scenes are not necessarily eye catching (the whole reason they get transformed! LOL!) Light and shadow, composition and design + art history (mostly painting) inform decisions.
Part 2: Consumersism and connections to the environment.
I was raised on shopping and financial markets. Both seem to be in my DNA.
I am interested in the environment and environmental protections. Although I learned at a young age calling yourself an environmentalist can make you unpopular. Nobody likes smug! Not everyone is a Kool-Aid drinker. (No offence to the historic North American beverage powders still in production!)
I have a fascination with the connections between beauty and toxicity. This interest influences a lot of my creative choices and helps inform my approach.
