Ideals II, 2017

Artist book; lino print and mono print

21 x 29.7 cm 

A continuation of Ideals I, Ideals II is an artist book made of visuals derived from fashion magazine cutouts, which where then collaged and drawn into surreal figures. As the title suggests, the prints thematically channel this generation’s constant strive for the next best - be it a product, an item of clothing, cosmetic procedure, so on and so forth. The whole yet broken figures are an embodiment of these ideals fusing together. A result of which is a completely distorted, bringing forward the absurdity and unattainability of such expectations.

The figures are rendered using mono printing, a technique which gives off a jagged line, echoing this reality and embracement of imperfection.
