Fragment Piece III, 2021
(1.50 x .50 x 1.50)
This textile installation consists of fifteen images that have been cropped, resized to human proportions and individually screen printed by hand onto transparent fabric and installed in layers to create a fragmented and distorted effect.
It is an investigation of how imagery is reproduced, mass produced, disseminated and manipulated and the shift that can happen when disparate images are brought into proximity.
Most of the images are sourced from art history and contemporary popular culture, and are often associated with a linear, dominant narrative. By removing them from their original context, reframing, and restructuring, the viewer is asked to make new associations with each image, and rethink how popular images and information can function.
