This piece is a collection of 19 illustrated wooden panels. Each panle is representative of a memory from a journey I took, beginning in Poznan, then travelling to Wroclaw, Prague, Budapest, Berlin and finally Hamburg. I chose to include, building, patters, people, signs and bits of text that I foud were representative of my journey. I chose his format, as I wanted to explore the way small fragments of memory come together to create a complete experience.
Sketch and Cut
A series of collaged images based on a trip around Northern Europe.
These images are originally lino cuts printed on to Ceramic plates. I created a set of two, inspired by the idea of different food trends, particularly the 'clean eating' diets, as it attracted such a dedicated following, as well as such hostility. I wanted to explore the idea of the cycle of how people easily idolise, or demonise. The first plate is a play on eve in the garden of Eden. I wanted to portray a character with similar aesthetics to those of the 'gurus' of the clean eating fad, tempting us into their garden with a healthy clean apple, iPhone tucked into pocket. The second image uses similar imagery in the opposite way. With plates placed behind the character to imitate a halo, the 'guru' is pouring out some healthy anti oxidant cranberry juice, its importance a play on the biblical importance of wine.
