The Given That Keeps on Givin’

Clunie Reid private view at the Contemporary Art Society. Video work – ‘The Given That Keeps on Givin” and stills culled from the video (printed onto perspex then silver inked.) feature in the exhibition.

Found and staged images are subject to intense re-workings through an arbitrary combination of digital manipulation, collage and a diversity of printing processes’

I’ll write up my recent studio work soon, but Clunie Reid’s video collage work chimes with my recent work manipulating and collaging found imagery, then applying paint to further disrupt the image and it’s meaning.

Disrupted Comic Book Narratives – work in progress

I’m working on a series of large-scale comic book pages which combine frames from different sources, frames with dialogue removed and enlarged details from frames, with the intention of creating new narratives. I’ll then spray paint / highlight dialogue as in the Redacted Batman series.
