Budding disillusion

Drawing

Coloured pencil and graphite pencil on paper

My body of work represents disillusionment with traditional authoritarian structures in society. By inverting symbols of religious and government power so that they are merely decorative, vase-like objects, their authority is stripped away and the reality beneath a beautiful façade is uncovered. Vibrant flowers symbolise disenchantment with the failings of authority, and what may grow from the hidden essence of these structures when the ruse of functionality is removed. Buildings, reminiscent of Duchamp’s readymades, are upturned for reinterpretation, and ambiguity guides an emotional response influenced by audience experience. Hence the illusion of power in society is disrupted.
