Artists Statement May 2012

BARBARA J GRAHAM

 

Susan Sontag wrote in The Pornographic Imagination that an artist was a freelance explorer of spiritual dangers and a broker in madness.

 

I see my role as a painter as one where I explore the psychological spaces of the human conscious that my audience might fear to tread, and the images I create are the trophies of those experiences.  The figures in my work occupy an unreal world in seductive colour that offers sinister undertones of transgression and taboo.  Uncertain narratives imply a moment in time that is unseen.

I draw upon news stories, films and pop culture to reflect back on to society its own darkest demons.  Only those already corrupted will be corruptible.

When you judge another, you do not define them, you define yourself.

Wayne Dyer, Psychologist
