The Morgue

From the warm colours and cosy scale to its simultaneously desolate and stagnant environment, The Resting Room invites the viewer to question the images’ context. With what little information is given, the interior points towards a comfortable visit to the hairdressers, yet the subtly drab palette and display of equipment also offers a glimpse into a more clinical way of viewing the work. The interplay between mundanity and deeper thematic contexts are a great concern in my practice. It encourages the viewer to consider that not all things presented end at face value.
