Liberation Bone (Monologues) - 2019-2023.
Montages using original photography, overpainting, and digital art processes.
A short series of figure-based artworks/illustrations combining approaches from across my practice.
They grew out of a 'failed' sequence of photographic portraits I made in the spring of 2022. The idea then was to explore the notion of liberation both in myself and in other people. What things have liberated us in our lives? Were they things we chose or had they been thrust upon us?
I reappraised the images in February 2023 and chose to use them as the basis for experiments in montage and overpainting.
