Stuck in the Iridescent Mud (2020) digitally manipulated collage; original dimensions 4855 x 2392 px (NFS)
Daisy Jones’ multimedia approach explores the themes of health anxiety and her Grandmother's journey with Alzheimer’s - particularly the impact this had as lockdown commenced.
“Stuck in the Iridescent Mud [above] is a digital collage exploring symbolic meanings of indescribable emotions; confusion and nostalgia, with a bubblegum colour-scheme. Whilst creating this I was reliving my memories with my Grandmother, and trying to imagine how to depict the journey her mind must be going through with losing her memory.”
Home of Spirits (2020) mixed media and air dry clay diorama, 23cm x 26.5cm (NFS)
“Home of Spirits [above] is a surreal mixed media diorama envisioning a fantasy world where memories are kept. By using metallic and iridescent colours, it reflects the magic of something that we as a society do not fully understand yet. Imagining that my grandmother is almost shifting into a parallel reality helps me to feel more at peace with what has been happening.” [Daisy Jones]
Aluminum Link (2020) Clay Sculpture, digitally manipulated image, original image size 3024 x 4032px (NFS)
“Aluminum Link [above] is a clay sculpture that is my attempt of an embodiment of Dementia. It is a decaying tooth, but I used iridescent beads to try and shine a more positive and beautiful light on something so grotesque.”
