"As soon as I graduated in late September of this year, I knew that Instagram would be the ideal platform to get me started on introducing my work to the world, as the site’s popularity, great reputation and straightforward features are ideal for emerging and established artists alike." Our Instagram Pick of the Week is Fiona O Driscoll | @dead_button_illustration
"I would say that my work is primarily emotionally lead and is a method of exploring life, death and time. I think my work could be described as ephemeral, embracing the natural imperfections and accidents in art and printmaking." Our Instagram Pick of the Week is Izzy Grange | @izzyrosegrange Check out the rest of her interview in the Visual Arts section!
"I’m still very much in the process of creating a style I’m happy with. I enjoy experimenting with my work so this shows in the pieces I create. I think there is a very free and often natural aspect to my style which I like to contrast with more structured elements, I like to ensure my research is scientifically accurate and spend most of my time analysing the concept and the read of my pieces. I also like to hide metaphors, cross- references and symbolism to my work to portray different messages so the viewer can interact and add to the creation of the narrative based on themselves and their own knowledge and perception. My work used to be quite monochromatic but now as I move onto a new project my work has begun to take on bursts of colour."
