For the past two years I have been developing the theme of utopias and dystopias. I am working on four themes: the first is spaces of comfort and meditation, the second focuses on religious clashes and how people view spirituality, the next theme examines the concept of paradise and the last is an examination of culture in the 21st century.
In 2011 I spent six months in Germany for the European Student Exchange (Erasmus) and studied Media Art under professor Arnold Dreyblatt in Kiel Art School (Muthesius Kunsthochschule). During my time there I developed a photographic project on Romeo and Juliet. This was the first project I began investigating otherworldly places, scenarios and stories. I was keen to continue the subject and it was subsequently used in ‘ Neues Museum Am Schloss’ a project developed by students on the course. The project required the students to produce pieces of work to be used in a museum context or an aid to help the audience interact with these pieces. I have always been fascinated by people’s interaction with artwork and in particular the imagination behind their interpretation of them. I thus produced an installation based on the theme of two Opera house employees abandoning the sets and costumes of Romeo and Juliet to have a coffee, leaving the detritus around for gallery visitors to see and interpret. During my final year in university I chose the medium of drawing to portray these four subjects but have the ambition of making them large scale installations. In August and September of this year I exhibited in Halesworth Gallery (an old alms house) all the series of drawings I have done and also included in the exhibition prints and small installations whilst I also ornamented the trees of the opposite church yard.
