|For a split instant, I hope for the scene to be plausible and then knock the viewer off balance by a skewed perspective, placing un-likes together, or morphing one part into another. The scene might become a stage set for a daydream or past memory.|
Wendy James combines black and white images to create surreal photomontages. Pouring through years of accumulated film and digital images, she looks for ironic opposites, suitably posed figures, or symbolic objects. Taking visual clues where a shape or line might morph easily, she combines the parts using Photoshop.
Wendy teaches photography and ceramics at Essex High School. She also paints in oils and lives in Essex with her sculptor husband, John Brickels.
This artist resides in Essex.
