Statement

Using images of another time and place against a different background , I have tried to show disparities in substance. In both the works, I have set objects which present another culture and environment, differing feelings and mood against a familiar picture closer home to my experiences. Through theses images I look at many ironies one is presented in present day and similarities in cultures in the modern age, which often comes to us in the form of kitsch and otherwise.
