Mass Panic

15 collages with colour paper, drawing paper and acrylic
50 x 65 cm (20" x 25") each

Mass Panic is a series of figurative and text-based poster collages revolving around themes of childhood, anxiety and queerness. In this project I am particularly interested in mocking the cultural anxiety that surrounds the figure of the queer child. The collages I have produced act loosely as snapshots of memories of childhood recalled in adult life.
