MA Fine Art 2011

My current practice focuses on representations of urban youth within contemporary media and culture. I aim to engage with issues of classification, stereotype, and mediated image in order to challenge current cultural perceptions.

Using a combination of source images found in the media and self created photographs my paintings employ amplified colours, fluorescent grounds and large dynamic brush-stokes, echoing the magnified personas of the subjects as presented by the mass media.
