Saffron Newey: Unprocessed - Art Collector

Saffron Newey paints from photographic montages that are created on computer. The resulting oil paintings resonate somewhere between fact and fiction, autobiography and observation. Her current works of empty office spaces are collaged with incongruous images of plants and planes of luminous colour. The paintings aim to both entice and displace the viewer by creating double visions - two narratives told in tandem create a visually stereoscopic paradox of perception.
