About the artist
Clunie Reid employs a degraded, deskilled approach to analyse and comment upon commodity status and industrial standardisation across her practice. Found and staged images are subject to intense re-workings through an arbitrary combination of digital manipulation, collage and a diversity of printing processes; the visual information built and layered to achieve highly structured chaos.
Reid examines representations and relationships between the internal and external, image and text, perception and understanding, looking particularly at advertising imagery. A contemporary idea of beauty is challenged and dismantled by the artist’s use of cheap materials and direct interventions on the surface of works with black markers, acts of apparent sabotage that demystify the highly-constructed visuals of the mass media. For their presentation, images are printed directly on aluminium without being laminated, gaffer-taped to the wall and arranged to make a non-hierarchical, non-linear arrangement which can be scanned and negotiated in no particular order.
