Lee Hutton - "Fake-It"
W: 1010mm x H: 770mm x D: 80mm
Approx. Weight: 29kg
This work is framed (but can be supplied either framed or unframed)
Fake-it consists of two digitally produced prints from manipulated photos which I took. These prints are stuck on board and cut out by hand, and then they are spaced and layered on top of each other with a mirror behind them. The mirror’s function is to reflect the boards from the back and also to include the reflection of the viewer into the work and simultaneously condense the surroundings’ reflections and the work into one. Fake-it’s concept is based on the facades that all people present through out life. The reflections of the viewer, represents the finding of the true self, to look through the facades and to see you. For who and what you truly are without giving a performance to the world. The photographs used is originally of a car accident that I experienced. This accident prompted me to revise my life and got me to see through my own facades. In our lives I believe it is necessary to be able to be yourself and not an actor aimed at pleasing humanity, life is too short for that.
I am inspired by everyday happenings in my life and as a result of this it is impossible for me to work in one media alone, because no two days or two events are alike and thus no two works can be alike. Each and every work that I undertake is based on one or another theme and I am sure that these can relate to someone some where. I aim to please the eye with my work, as life is short and I am a firm believer that it is important to be surrounded by beauty, especially in our current chaotic world.
