      Biography

      My art practice is rooted in popular culture, encompassing Performance, Video, Photography, Drawing/Painting, Print and Collage, reflecting and highlighting the slippages between fantasy and reality in everyday life. I also DJ, both in an Art Context and club-nights. My playing of records has been described as "a secular activity”.

      Brian Eno said- “POP is about creating new and imaginary worlds and inviting people to join them”- I think that’s more or less what I do with my work, partularly with my Performances:  "Cole explores art as a form of entertainment and celebration, often engaging people in public spaces where a group of people or a community become the process of the work, allowing her practice to operate in multiple contexts. There is a collective association , where everyone can meet on the same plane through combining nostalgia and familiarity with a do it yourself attitude and aesthetic".

      In the last few years I have returned to Drawing which has become increasingly important and I have begun screenprinting on paper and fabric. My ventures across media constantly inform each other and I have become particularly interested in colour, pattern and movement and their relationship with music.
