So after an incredibly long hiatus I've decided to try to keep more up to date with this blog. Having seen that it still (somehow) gets a ton of traffic, I thought I'd add a few new posts with work from the past few months, and hopefully keep it updated with new work as it happens. I graduated this summer from Falmouth and since then I haven't really been doing any photography, but I've been really into using my Instagram as a kind of creative outlet/organised mess/orange shrine, which has been a good pointless but creative little task for the unemployed post-grad that I currently am. These are just a bunch of recent-ish photos from my Instagram - which you should follow here - all photos by meeeeeeeeeee (in this post, not on my insta.) Instagram is the main social networking channel that I use on a regular basis to post new stuff on, so if you want to keep up to date then your best bet is to follow me there. As you can see, it's currently having an orange moment. Don't know how long I'll be able to keep this up, but the best things in life are orange so it shouldn't be that hard. And to all the haters of orange.....what's wrong with you please.
I have a new website which is predominantly fashion-focused so check that out to and as usual, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any enquiries. Now that I'm no longer studying I have no valid excuse to be so crap at replying to emails, sorry in advance if I slip back into my old ways though xxxx
So here are the 3 main images of my Final Major Project from my university exhibition. I've yaddered on about it enough now but if you hadn't yet read, my theme was Concealment - looking at concealing ourselves until we're no longer recognisable. The exhibition was a little while ago now, but I've been away and haven't had a chance to take any good quality photos of the paintings. A few people were confused when seeing them in real life about what they literally were - the more mystery the better I say - but they're digital photo collages which are then overpainted.
I will be selling prints of these photos and any others from my blog this summer so if you're interested please email email@example.com !
Here's a little phone snap of how my exhibition space looked - I was given a massive space which makes my work look really tiny but the images above are A3 if that makes it any clearer!
Here are some really terrible quality photos of some of the other work I had up (above)
This week I've also re-listed and updated my website. I made it 2 years ago ish and then at some point I decided i hated it and made it all hidden but I spent ages this weekend updating it with a lot of current/recent work so check it out!
I'm going to get my etsy up and running ASAP where I'll be selling lots of prints this summer buttttt like I said, please email if you're interested in the meantime: firstname.lastname@example.org
This will probably be the last set of really weird n ugly n creepy work I do for a while! Like I've said, I'm going to Falmouth University to study Fashion Photography in September and I'm going to focus on fashion for the summer so watch this space :)
More overpainting experiments for my fmp - concealment. Inspired by Rik Garrett's Symbiosis series. This quote basically sums up exactly what I'm trying to say through this project:
"We are so accustomed to disguise ourselves to others that in the end we become disguised to ourselves."
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
My final exhibition at uni has been and gone now...I was really stuck on what to do for my project at first, I went down all these odd paths of different work and everything was very average and very uninspiring, but I ended up being really pleased with how my final piece turned out. I got a Distinction in my Art Foundation so I'm totally over the moon, and this means I will 100% be going to Falmouth University to study Fashion photography so yay!
I'll be posting a photo of my exhibition space asap; I have a lot of new work to be released on here in the next few days - I'm on holiday at the moment and have my final fmp work waiting to be photographed/uploaded when I get home. I actually managed to sell some of my final images fairly quickly after somebody took a fancy to them at the exhibition opening, but for the summer I'm going to be trying to sell lots more prints/original artworks/photo-painitngs so keep your eye out: I'll post a link to an etsy page once I have it up and running. In the meantime:
