Focusing on cherished ideals and elements of Victorian Britain, travel, discovery, the garden, and collecting, Between Falsehoods is a series of constructed images questioning our relationship to the exotic. Using a layering process in the image making, domestic paint (as a nod to the commonplace) is applied to surfaces rendering them exaggerated yet refined. The collection of images proposes that the exotic itself is a construct of the mind and not a pre-existing form. As something other to what we know, the mystery of the exotic is wrapped up with its unattainability. Our desire for ownership therefore contradicting its very nature.
