Pre-loved Objects

Preparation for HE Summer Shows 2017 / Prep HE Summer Show – Published 25th May 17

“Basically, my work is about preloved objects and reviving them. All the pieces are made from scrap materials from charity shops. It’s juxtaposing childhood and adulthood and bringing things to life.

“I have a natural interest in humour and childlike themes within my work, and I have an interest in painting and sculpture, so I wanted to try and combine that. There’s a strong theme of childhood so people can relate in a way. Some of the pieces are interactive.

“I’m glad I did my Foundation. I thought I’d go into my degree knowing exactly what my specialism was, but upon doing the Foundation, I developed my own style, which is what I was worried about in the first place. I knew I wanted to do Fine Art, but wasn’t sure where I wanted to go with it. Now it’s given me more confidence and freedom with my work.

“I’m going to stay at AUB to study BA (Hons) Fine Art.”
