My recent MA art practice engaged with the human condition, creating sculptural representations using ready-mades and items from the everyday. Re-purposed and layered with narratives to raise questions about the psychological well-being of vulnerable individuals engaging in over connectedness to a virtual world. A world where: the ‘virtual ideal’ is not ‘actuality of real life’, but a blurring of the two.

Discarded shop mannequins were sourced and appropriated as a stand in for the human figure. These ready-made by-products of retail consumerism, once presented as an imitation of the ‘ideal’ however not ‘real’ were re-purposed. Found objects were modified and layered over the connecting elements of the work to deliver literal symbolic imagery laced with subjective messages to raise questions about: risk, vulnerability, fragility, repression and the isolation of human casualties locked in a virtual world.

I collated this catalogue for the team curating the show that followed Summer Selection 2015 at Prettys. They too were under graduates at UCS. It is in the same format partly due to the fact they didn't have a designer to produce it, nor money to fund it. I produced it FOC.

The graphic design for the rebranding was intended to be quirky and have a vintage feel. Originally Effie's, as the first advert shows here. I further developed the Curious Vixen brand after I left the shop in February 2017, and registered it as shown on my cover page shortly afterwards.
