‘Noughts and Crosses’ employs the visual vernacular of kitsch, a junk-shop aesthetic that’s a little bit ugly and a little bit trendy at the same time.

The original work was painted directly onto 7 inch records, which allowed me to mix and match images to construct my composition, sampling from a lost era to form a nostalgic soundtrack.

Revelling in the decorative and the decadent, with strong patterning hinting at wallpaper, doilies and other interior adornments, ‘Noughts and Crosses’ is replete with modish and outdated innovations whose aura of newness has been neutralised by the intervening decades.

Utilising that striking colour scheme of garish orange and brown – as seen in caravans and baches throughout the country – I’m interested in how the perceived value of objects and styles is not intrinsic but undergoing constant transformation, in a series of revivals in which they shift from tasteful to outdated, then to kitsch and once again desirable as they are taken up by new generations.
