KERRY HALL Studying Fine Art at Staffordshire University
Show More Artist Statement

I am currently a student at Staffordshire University in my 3rd and final year. My work relates to the shrine and the shrine like. The use of decoration of cheap plastic skulls. I use objects which refer to my personal relationships and express the grief in society which can be associated with them. The history of the object or the story is of fascination to me. The objects I use reflect the previous relationship I was in. These are me to you teddy bears and plastic decorated skulls. The skull is a symbolism of a decay but also a celebration such as the festival Mexican Day of the Dead. But also the death of a relationship or the death of someone in society and the decay or preservation which is used.
I use photography as a form communication,history and relationships which are associated with them.
Previous work from my second year is based upon self portraiture and the morals of society and how it influences our decisions. The religion aspects for society for example the Christian views on temptation,sex and alcohol and how society perceives us. I use props such as chocolate paint, real and fake flowers impartiuclarly roses.
