My practice combines photography, sculpture, installation, performance, and video. I explore
issues of violence, political conflicts, and human behaviors by deconstructing iconic cultural
imagery as a form of critique and analysis.
Producing work to find a connection between folklore, personal narrative and the sentiments we
lose through translations of texts and expressions, in a practice that is constantly connecting
research, travel and the literary.
My artworks combine a keen sense of color with technology, embracing the pastiche of
Postmodernism and the dreaminess of Romanticism, this makes my series stand out as extremely
pleasing and harmonious while being thought provoking.
Jeanette May is a photo-based artist using a critical, sometimes playful, approach to investigate
representation itself. Early training as a painter is evident in her carefully arranged photo
compositions and rich color palette.
I use modern and historical photo processes ranging from wet plate collodion to digital video to
examine individuals and institutions -- why they came to be, how they are presented to us, and
how they affect our lives.
My work examines both the obvious and unobvious. I challenge preconceived ideas about ordinary objects by jettisoning their traditional functions and transforming something familiar into its unapparent counterpart.
