Wall Of Noise
I have created a wallpaper installation that consists of screen-printed wallpaper pasted onto the wall that acts as a background for the mounted work on top. I see the tiles, the ink drawing and the screen print as extensions of the wallpaper. My aim for the work is to grasp the attention of the viewer and hope that the tiles become lost and then found within their gaze. I want the hand-drawn aspect of the work to be noticed by the viewer.
I have used wallpaper and tiles within my installation because I want to display them within a fine art setting. I am interested in the connection that the ‘decorative’ arts have to the ‘feminine’ and the typical view that it is a lower form of art within the hierarchy of art.
