Saturday Gallery Club #57 - This is My Home
Inspired by the photography of Edith Amituanai and George Crummer, our young participants will be creating a collaged photograph scene that represents their own home and identity.
Taking inspiration from her surrealist collage practice, Megan Archer’s succulent paintings depict photo-montages of human bodies digitally manipulated into near-abstract forms. The oil on canvas works are barely recognisable as human, yet through hints of colour and line are unmistakably ‘of the flesh’, with the source images for these paintings typically taken from internet pornography or erotic massage books. After the distortions these images undergo, they become desexualised, shifting the focus from titillation to aesthetic contemplation.
