Grace Connors is a young artist, whose striking and well-considered aesthetic employs techniques of digital and traditional collage.
Using family photos as a point of departure, Connors works to subvert sentimentality and personal histories to create generic images. We can connect to the imagery through its stylish presentation and design sensibility, but are at the same time struck with the uncomfortable feeling of being a voyeur to someone else’s memories. The personal is reduced and made-to-be consumed, referring to the current image monopoly and the value of images in a post-internet society.
Freshly graduated from Central Institute of Technology in Visual Art and Contemporary Craft, Connors is continuing her studies at Curtin University in 2015. Expect exciting things from this stylish emerging artist. Exhibiting throughout September on the PCC screen.
