A PORTRAIT OF THE ARTIST, 2014
My latest series, A Portrait of the Artist, has so far manifested through two group exhibitions in 2014 – Fresh Produce at Turbine Art Fair, July 2014, and Degrees of Separation at the Absa Gallery, September 2014. These collections represent the artists with whom I exhibited on two group exhibitions. Each artist was ‘catalogued’ (photographed, interviewed and the data then quantified). In analysing the data that emerges from these groups of people, I create statistics, data visualisations and infographics which become in-situ, multimedia art installations. The exploration between the quantitative and qualitative, the categorical and personal, the binary and insight all encourage the viewer to engage with the often-anonymous makers of the artwork on the walls of the exhibition.
