Statement

Angela graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone with a first class honours degree in fine art. Angela's practice centres on subjects that investigate the fundamental human experience, specifically addressing the issues that surround mortality. In a society reluctant to face the transient nature of life, the artist aims to confront the viewer with the themes of death, loss and grief. The intention is to re-open discourse with the aim of enlightenment/healing as these themes are often considered morbid or distasteful which has resulted in a disengaged and fearful society. Drawing on her own personal experience of loss, her work intentionally engages at a direct and intense level. Whilst the work resonates from her own understanding, she explores her concepts in the philosophies of Nietzsche, Sartre and more recently Roland Barthes. The Memento Mori tropes of the 14th Century and the Vanitas paintings of the16th and 17th Centuries also provide a rich ground for exploration and response. Angela's creative vocabulary encompasses many mediums, enabling a liberated expressive response and the artist continues to leave her practice open to experimentation. To date pieces have included video, installation, performance, sound and found objects. The universal sentiment and concerns of her pieces has received recognition through International exhibitions. With a leaning towards socially engaged practice, she had the honour of being selected to perform twice at the Society for Scottish Artists annual exhibition at the National Galleries of Scotland.
