ARTIST STATEMENT

The artwork, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” depicts the mental affects that have developed at workplaces due to the implications of technology that takes over jobs that cause psychological hardships. Various drawing style have influenced my own practice in the development of this artwork, that includes depictions of monster-like characters merged with human forms creates a metamorphic reality. In “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” these themes have been embedded into a visual representation of drawings in the artist book format which from one direction to the next, transitions from outer visual presentation of a person to deep inner thoughts, emotions and ongoing effects of mental health in the workplace due to loss of economic support through developments of technology into the workforce.

ARTWORK PROCESS

Artwork was created using various 2D materials (charcoal, pen, pencil) after initial designs completed from research from Ai3 project assessment.
