  • About

    Pat Brassington's work has always used found images and those made by the artist. Until 1998 she worked in black and white, however more recently she has begun to use colour and worked with digital software in order to create the strange and surreal juxtapositions for which she is known. 'Lunch' 2000 appears to represent a torso elongated, sexualised, and referencing a body other than human - possibly that of an insect. The notion of feeding is enhanced by the conjunction of title and torso.

    Brassington is able to present haunting, dream like images which lead the viewer to the edges of the imagination. The works from this particular series are perverse and beautiful. They are highly resolved images which mark the abilities of this artist to change technique and form, and be able to present her ideas with the same, if not more maturity.
