The guiding inspiration behind this collaborative work is the artist’s shared experience as young women at significant junctions in their artistic pursuits. Together they have explored ideas of growing up and being lost in an unknown world, and conceptually drawn parallels of their experiences to those encountered by the heroines of classic fairytales.
Make, Believe looks at the notion behind the games we play as children and the role that they play in us now.
The exhibition plays on contradictory references to the traditional, nostalgic form of the fairytale in contrast to the new and the modern. The artists aesthetically reference this through the use of a sepia verses technicolour, using the visual form of old-fashioned games in a new, digital way, mixing the familiar with the unexpected. This collaboration has seen the creation of a refined collection of original pieces which push the boundaries of individual mediums. The outcome of this is an exciting and dynamic collection of work.
