Consisting of a suite of large-scale “image-objects” – made from oversized digital prints forcibly installed into IKEA frames – it is the political implications of an image’s materiality that are at issue in Material Image Solutions. The images used for this process have been selected from web-based video and photography. By utilising consumer-level image production and presentation techniques, such as OfficeWorks print on-demand and IKEA frames, and incorporating their transactional detritus, including packaging and receipts, these works explore the dichotomy between democratic and hierarchical approaches to the artmaking process, and the aesthetic impact of economic expediencies.
