Cherelle Sappleton

Location: London

I am a visual artist and melophile living and working in London. My practice centres on photographic media with an interest in feminist agendas and performance utilising abstraction and surrealist aesthetics. Blending these elements together, the work I make uses the black female body as a starting point to explore and respond to issues of representation, sensation and agency via collage, moving image and photography.
