Parts and Labour

Gleaned from the pages of food and design magazines, this new work is a series of collages consisting of otherworldly landscapes and interiors that reflect on consumption, home décor and the labour of cookery. Assembled using traditional collaging methods, the images suggest alternative views of the carefully constructed advertising layout while drawing on historical motifs, such as the reclining figure and leisure in nature. Photo fragments are arranged into works where dreamlike states of consciousness are sated by flying squid and honey ooze.
