Collaboration with Illustrator, ANGELA MITCHELL.

FEMME was an exhibition featuring single works made together by two artists from very different creative backgrounds, myself as a photographer and illustrator Angela Mitchell. We wanted to challenge the concept of the artist as a sole creator pursuing a singular vision. By collaborating, we instead created a co-dependency between the photographed female form and interwoven illustration, whilst retaining our individual unique expression in our own mediums.

The printed and painted artworks of FEMME are gritty textural mix of film/digital photography intertwined with delicate illustration in coloured and metallic inks. Themes of feminity, fashion, flora and fauna are explored; but it is the process of working together that has predominantly defined the exhibition’s outcome. At every stage we focused on how the narrative would extend beyond our own part in the project — from exploratory sketches to photographing the muses to developing the mediums in order to integrate successfully as complete works.

A short film was also created for opening night with music especially composed by Perth composer OLIVIA BETTINA DAVIES.
