DESCRIPTION

By using a variety of materials and presenting my work in a collage format, I aim to illustrate how the visual art transform and enables cultural development. The emphasis on realism stems from my social realism background and a passion for art education and practice. This is combined with an eclectic overlapping of images, some more abstracted than others, in order to produce a visual narrative.
The deliberately bright colours reflect the optimistic spirit of collaboration and the joy of object making that is the creative process. The strong outlines serve to accentuate and flatten prominent figures.
