Alienation and Brutality and Sugar and Spice - 2019
Material is united in Alienation and Brutality and Sugar and Spice (2019) through the acts of condensing and entrapment. Debris mingles within a distinctly enclosed, suppressing space; as if it were a semi-dysfunctional, rogue, dystopian entity.
By combining objects from Dudley's personalised archive, a surrogate body is fabricated. Presenting a metaphorical self allows the artist to externalise and process perplexing experiences and internal dissonance.
