AOI Images 33 Awards Night!
Last night I had the honor of attending the annual Images award ceremony at the LCC in London. There was some amazing pieces and it was a hugely inspiring night. Here's an extra cheesy pic of me by my two selected pieces "Teapot man and friends" and "Good bad conscience".
- Gemma Latimer
- Inspired by Circuses, Victoriana, and Surrealism I create collage’s combining the past and present through a mixture of found imagery, illustration, photography and drawing. Working with collage and my trusted photocopier I create all of my work by hand, frequenting second hand shops, car boot sales and markets to build up my ever growing archive of second hand books, magazines, photographs and postcards. I always create my work by hand, only using a computer for layout at final stages. I like my illustration to have a certain tangibility, a quality that cannot be captured by digital means alone, even if that is as small as a blob of ink or a smudge on a photocopy.
