Notes on the brain
How others perceive us has been a long held preoccupation, never more so with the ease and speed of today’s narcissistic selfie obsessive with access to any number of media platforms. Charlotte’s interest in deconstructing our sense of self led her to examine the ‘beauty of our own minds’ and potential of the ‘internalized selfie’. Using the brain of the infamous VJ DeepVisual, Charlotte creates a series of images of fleeting instances as seen on his MRI CT scan. These snapshots of time and even thoughts at the point of forming, create the basis for this body of new work allowing us to question identity from a different and little seen perspective, that of our internal physiology. CW Stubbs enjoys bringing beauty to subjects that are often disturbing or uncomfortable. Using vibrant colour to seduce the viewer and stark, uncompromising imagery, she challenges our perception of the narrative truth from multi-media sources.
