Barbe Scarlette

"Discarded images of classical art works are reassembled and interpretation of the narrative of the initial image is distorted by reworking and disguising. The classical art piece is captured through the lens, hand cut and rearranged then reframed again through digital technology.

The collaged diorama that has distorted the original is returned to the two-dimensional challenging the concept of the unique.

Layers of deception question the viewer’s perception juxtaposed into a three dimensional form. 

The traditional hierarchy is challenged by subverting the image of power. The feminine presides. The oligarch is mocked."
