Artwork sold unframed
These prints are based on images that capture a variety of events from around the world showing daily life, hype, loss, sadness and death.
Looking at tabloid images of celebrities or the latest trends is not difficult or challenging, perhaps even enjoyable. However, when we are confronted with images of war, famine or loss, we tend to turn a blind eye. One explanation for this is that we tend to place ourselves in the situation we see. It is easy to image oneself living the high life, surrounded by luxury and glamour, but to imagine oneself starving, watching loved ones die, or having one’s home taken away from them? This seems to be a reality that is difficult to comprehend. A reality so uncomfortable and unwanted that we become blind to the image we see which suggests a reality we do not want to imagine, for ourselves or anyone else.
