Press Release – ‘Constructions’ (To be exhibited January 2018 at the University Gallery, Brighton)

Through Constructions, I aim to use installation of my printed works to put forward a reflective viewpoint on contemporary social issues including homelessness, gentrification and the housing crisis, to display an assemblage of varied perspectives.

The Constructions are composed of (traditionally wall based) monotype and relief print images.
They are installed unconventionally on found materials (glass, wood, paper, cardboard and fabric) using flyposting techniques. I will also extend my exploration into materiality in my Constructions by including cardboard and other low cost, ‘real life’ materials that have rich metaphorical language with homelessness and the very real, everyday struggles individuals are facing due to the housing crisis.
