FANTASYING ABOUT DREAMLAND

What I’ve taken from Rachel Timmin’s work is her use of using the theme of the ‘Freak Show’ to put herself into her work in a roundabout way.

By using the theme of Dreams I have began to create collages based on my own dreams. What I find ‘creatively satisfying’ about beginning to create collages from magazines is the lack of control over the images. In a way, it’s kinda like dreaming. However, when you begin to collect the images together you have full control over the new image created.

“ALAN, WE HAVE GUESTS! GET THE TOMATOES!” (2015)

I began the process of looking at my own dreams by creating colourful ink drawings (inspired by the bold colours which Timmins uses in her work).

But, then I realised that most of the ‘dreams’ I have are actually nightmares so I began to create black ink drawings. I added liquid latex into some to see the effect which it would create.
