Animal Shadows 2021-2022
New series of hand-coloured still life images that continue my interest in photographing the material culture of everyday life to reveal something about our perverse relationship with nature. These photos are of plastic squeaky animals set amidst the tamed and curated nature of a garden vignette. These nursery animals are stripped of wildness through the language of cuteness and anthropomorphism.
Images from this series can be seen for the first time in the exhibition
