EVENT INFORMATION

Sourcing images from her personal collection and other assorted web-based archives, Holly Staniforth digitally combines these disparate visual elements to build a florescent dreamscape; a space where the imagination takes over and the usual conventions of the photographic image melt away.

By layering earlier archive material from the 20th Century with contemporary photographs and lacing the resulting image with neon hues, the work simultaneously points to a surrealist past and to a hyperreal digital present.

All the pieces in the exhibition are printed using a Risograph press; a 20th century printing technology that further emphasises the retro-futuristic aesthetics at play.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Holly Staniforth is a Manchester based artist and photographer, who graduated in 2021 receiving a BA Hons in photography from Manchester School of Art.

Her diverse practice, which takes in collage, photography and bookmaking, is defined by a curiosity for new and eccentric perspectives through which to view the world.
