This collation of pages from the artist’s personal visual diary, act as a kind of ‘stream-of-consciousness’ record of the humour and frustrations of life. The artist has adapted her usual printmaking practice into an artist’s book format, featuring versatile and playful collages of text and image. Engaging with sustainable methodologies, the diary features recycled process prints from earlier projects that have been modified through experimentation with layering, composition, and the addition of found materials. The use of Lo-Fi processes and the collaging of found imagery, such as historical figures and famous artworks, makes for an interesting interplay between the mundane musings of everyday life, and a wider socio-political context and critique. Filled with insecurities and personal stories, the pages can be brutally honest as well as ridiculous - with zero intention of being 'good art'.
