2018 - 19
Project summary:

I am an emerging Artist and Art Psychotherapist interested in the relationship between Reality and Fantasy, particularly how we are able to explore this through the process of image-making and dialogue.

My own work weaves collage, clay and animation (stopmotion) to explore the overlap between fantasy and reality. I primarily work as a collage artist, with my work often featuring disjointed or disembodied women, drawing inspiration from ideas of Surrealism and Existentialism, to create a blend of fantasy and reality.

My most recent project formed a major part of my MA studies, where-in I explored the idea of “Monstrousness” through the A/R/T/ographic lens of Artist, Researcher and Therapist. This project wove together image, text and dialogue to explore how “The Monster” came to represent repressed aspects of the repressed self. Key themes within this work included Schizoid Processes, Thanatos & Eros, Perceptions of Violence, and loss.

My work helps me to explore and consider existential ideas that have arisen through both work and study, particularly those of isolation, dread and dis/integration. The opportunity to work with Wolverhampton University would allow me to further develop these themes through larger scale collage and animation work, using my existing knowledge of print-making and woodwork to create work which expands far greater than the limits of my current canvases.
