Biography

Socio-political themes are intrinsic to all the projects I pursue. I am currently exploring globalisation and disconnectedness in a hyper-real world. Visually, the images I digitally create are based on photographs I have taken of rural Asian landscapes. This practice has now extended to local scenes of London. These depict scenarios from the contrasting world of film and television, as well as objects in our everyday surroundings. All voice concerns and narratives inherent to research. This point of enquiry, emerging through collage asks the viewer if entertainment as art can be radical. These raise questions of what constitutes the 'natural' in a Postmodern world and how much does cultural conditioning answer for. Interview with Jonathan Harris (PDF 142 KB) Marina de Stacpoole is based in London
