In Print We Trust
February 20 @ 10:00 am - February 22 @ 7:00 pm
In Print We Trust’ is a solo show by Bristol-based artist Theadora Ballantyne-Way showing original screenprints, sculpture and video projection.
The work of Theadora Ballantyne-Way distorts and questions viewers’ sense of perception. Lying somewhere between the immateriality of the imagination and the materiality of the handmade, her misleading depictions of reality force us to question what it is we might really be seeing.
Her enlargement of diminutive everyday objects is not a critique of consumer habits but a celebration of the surreal, and a playful challenge to the rich history of English pastoral.
In her work, mundane utensils become monumental industrial components, a transformation that elevates them into both objects of aesthetic consideration and bizarre emblems of middle-class terror.
With the textures, marks and antiquated processes of screenprint and etching, she produces a false sense of legitimacy, one that is at odds with most forms of contemporary image production.
