Little Monsters / by Emily Sparkes

I will be showing my painting Nutella #2 as part of the Little Monsters exhibition next month!

It Came from YouTube! 

The Creature from the Chocolate Spread Lagoon! 

Taken from Youtube user CemreCandar ’Bathing in 600lbs of Nutella’, this painting explores how the use of the Internet and digital technologies makes monsters through the likes of memes, video clips and other shareable images, by emphasising absurd humour, hyperbole, and hysteria. Furthermore, our contemporary dependence on the screen can also provide a rationale for a re-examination of the canvas and of painting.
