Sharon Farrelly

Location: London/Plaistow

I am a artist/marker, I investigate the application of surfaces,textures and paint.

My narratives are spewed images of popular culture, poetry, parody and contemporary culture such as Hollywood, British Humour, Art and Celebrity, aligned with historical and autobiographical events including my previous work environments.

My ideas come as a result of Appropriating from a broad range of media sources: Internet, YouTube, films, poetry and paper media publications, including expression from my own position and experience of British and American events. I want viewers to be lost in recognition and familiarity of the texts and images when they look at my paintings/ Installations – although frenetic in their appearance requiring a slower realisation of placement of the images and text. I am continually looking for new imagery from the vast multi media we have at our disposal and get really excited when prompted by images which further informs my next piece of work. I create varied sized, immediately recognizable and subjugated imagery emotionally conveying to the intellectual investigation of painting/making. I attack conventional ideas about individuality and innate creativity by altering lines of perceptions
