Thanks For The Freedom – Artwork

Thanks For The Freedom!

What do we chose to do with ‘freedom’ and are we actually ever really free? I created this work in response to the fragility of the freedoms we supposedly are presented with. The ability to overlook injustice and to buy in to a system of material trinkets and baubles while others are repressed.

I’ve been experimenting with collage for the last 2 months the ability to draw material from magazines and books and create something completely different is of great interest to me. A subverting of the original intention. I enjoy working with themes of a political and social commentary nature, I think it’s even more important at present to highlight those things people may not want to accept.
