BONNIE AND CLYDE - artist's statement

Since 2008 I have been engaged in the practice of mixed media collage and screen print. My method of working often begins with my photography taken with a rangefinder camera in cities that inspire and create emotional responses in me. I am often drawn to urban environments, the sea and the people in their environments. I want my art to consist of accessible modern speaking visual pictures that draw the viewer in and I use layers of photo-montage to express this. Real elements are merged with texture, words and colour to create abstract scenes based around the social and political scene of the studied environment. I often use typography, signage, objects and architecture in my work. I construct collages initially using my photographs as a basis merged with layers of found images and textures. I often print separate elements onto semi transparent Japanese paper and montage onto large sheets of paper. I paint and mark-make using acrylics, inks, oil pastels, markers, letraset and screen-print building up to the finished piece. The collage is then deconstructed using the computer again to create the screen – print version of the collage. This is not a copy but a representation of the collage. I make a limited number of layers, one of which will be a giclee print and then various layers of block colour and glazes to add punch and texture to the print.
