Gillian Goodridge - BA (Hons) Fine Art, part time year 4
Art is the demonstration that the ordinary is extraordinary, Amedee Ozenfant
My inspiration: everyday life. My passion: art.
I question the traditional distinction between the realms of art and everyday life by blurring the boundary between these realms through the re-presentation of readymades, assisted readymades and everyday, commonplace experiences.
I transform everyday objects by applying simple interventions in form and/or presentation, changing their status from commonplace objects to art objects. By shifting the context in which the viewer encounters these objects, I aim to turn the previously banal into the exceptional and unexpected.
