ARTIST STATEMENT

The future has been predicted, deciphered and reimagined numerous times and has become a source of constant change. Although the present is clear, the continual rate of innovation, it is unclear what the result will be. Themes of alienation and mythology were influential factors in the development of this artwork and my practice. The artwork ‘Corollary’ depicts a possible future in which humankind and nature have drifted apart, alienating humans from the limitless bounds of nature which has been enhanced by the selection of colours within the work. The work adopts a religious tone to embed a deeper meaning as if this source of captivity was a consequence dealt by God for pushing Earth’s limit beyond capability. This corollary would then allow for Earth’s rejuvenation.

ARTWORK PROCESS

Artwork was created using paint on a canvas after initial designs completed from research from Ai3 project assessment.
