BLEACH was shortlisted for the Open Contemporary Young Artist award at the Biscuit Factory Gallery in Newcastle from May- August 2019.
This original piece focuses on repetitive patterns, taking common place cleaning products out of their usual context, enabling the viewer to be reintroduced to the objects appearance or moved by its renewed visual presence.
"My work focuses on the ideas behind contemporary life and consumerism, through depicting the beauty in everyday objects, which are often overlooked and disregarded. I take influence from still life cinematography, within advertising, and the psychology behind visual merchandising and branding, to display the most basic necessities in bold compositions with vivid colour schemes. Ultimately I want people to feel joyful and gain pleasure when viewing my work. I want to make the viewer look at a commonplace object in an inquisitive way, by seeing something new and fresh."

For limited edition prints, the design is digitally printed onto a thick and durable woven canvas which is then hand cut and stretched on a 2.5cm deep frame, made from FSC approved wood. The printing process fuses the ink deep into the fibres of the canvas fabric so the design won’t rub, peel or scratch off. The print also comes with wall fixtures. If you would like to adjust the sizing of the print, please enquire.
