I based my MA collection on an illustration I made using images collected in various cities. The illustration is called “The Lady is loosing balance and the Mailman thinks she is popular”.
I like to explore how the combination of images can create meanings and stories that are not there to begin with. I work in a very intuitive way, trying to build an atmosphere within my work. I find that too much thought can make the outcome feel forced and overworked.
For this project I was drawn to the absurd. From a pair of legs sticking out of a trashcan in New York to an elephant balancing on it’s trunk in Daniel Firman’s installation at Palais de Tokyo’s Superdome exhibition in Paris.
