Artist Research

Having relocated from South Wales to Yorkshire over two weeks ago I have be searching for connections. Communication is an essential element to moving from your family and the known to the unfamiliar and almost foreign. Whilst at Swansea Metropolitan University one of our tutors was Tim Davies who often uses postcards in his work. The artist's work above is not that of Tim Davies but reminded me of his work. However, rather than using other people's postcards and correspondents I would prefer to engage in my own. Contemporary communications prose a problem however. Facebook, e-mail, texts etc. remove the need for the physicality of ojects such as letters and postcards. Do I ebrace the new technology or revert to the traditions of the past in order to attain pieces I can document?

Jesse Treece:


Jesse Treece is a collage artist living in Seattle, Wa whose work screams of the simple, yet ever complex, interpretations of both the mundane and whimsical facets of life. He’s somehow managed to mix both the regular and absurd, beautiful and disturbing and put them into images that you find you could get lost in for hours. His tools of the trade include scissors, glue and vintage magazines/books.
