Abstract

Commissioned work, 2 editorial illustrations for ‘The Independent on Sunday, ABC colour supplement’, 22/08/04 (P5) & 18/04/04 (P5). The two illustrations cited here were commissioned to accompany the articles ‘The Shepherds of Arcady? You’ll find them down at the internet café..’ and ‘Whose Venice do we want to preserve? And why, when it’s already dead?’ . The two illustrations included here are from a series of four Diss produced for the regular feature ‘Notes and Theories’ by writer, curator and cultural theorsist, Stephen Bayley. (The work was initially drawn on paper, scanned, digitally manipulated, printed then rescanned. This working method was used to give the imagery a slightly deteriorated look and feel, which resembles mezzotint prints. This is congruent with a wider research objective which seeks to investigate the combination of traditional and digital media. The work seeks to challenge the perceived ‘tyranny’ of computer generated imagery, a process which tends to lack three dimensional reference and texture, through introducing substrates and physical materials. The intention is to create a visual dynamic where the process of production and the visual content have parity in relevance and value. The work is made within the context of a reader that can make conceptual links between image and text. The requirement of the reader to complete the link between image and text is fundamental to the success of the illustration.
