By June 2004 I will have completed my BA(Hons) Fine Art Degree at Nottingham Trent University. The images shown on this page are taken from my work in the run up to my degree show. I have also recently entered work into the Hype Gallery Exhibition in London.
My interests lie in fashion and interiors combined with culturally related issues. Over the past year I have been dabbling with screen-printing and installation. I also am adept with Adobe Photoshop and continually use it within my work in order to manipulate and create new and exciting imagery.
‘Self-Portrait – Living with Denial’
In this installation I am attempting to mislead the audience through the ambiguity within my imagery. (The actual person depicted within my work is Natalie Portman as one of her characters from Star Wars; my doppelganger). My objective is aided by the intentional misuse of the term, ‘self-portrait’, within the deceptive title. I feel this reflects the way society is deluded by today’s consumer market. The use of the repetitive Warhol style pattern is to emphasise the mass-produced world of consumerism within which we function. Consequently indicating to my awareness of this implied deception, but admitting to my own indulgence despite that fact. Finally, questioning the outcome of turning this concept on its head; what are you left with?Sam Davidoff
