Artist's description:

‘I don’t want art that points to a thing, I want art that is the thing.’ These are the words of the activist artist, Tania Bruguera. I have used this quote as a starting point for the way I would like to visually express this ongoing art project, looking at the history of protest and activism in the UK. I plan to draw on the following cultural and aesthetic influences in order to find a way to invoke the impact of protest and activism through art: Toby Mott, in his essay A Punk’s Journey describes punk as having ‘the ideals of self-empowerment, motivation, action and common cause’ and this was reflected in the visual language they employed in their posters, flyers and fanzines. The immediacy of a lot of the graphics they used, the grainy monochrome over blocks of colour, raw use of collage, bleached out photographs and a stripped down aesthetic are all techniques and methods I will be experimenting with in relation to this project.

Materials used:

acrylic, inks, pen, collage, stitching
