Janette Parris Artist Talk

Janette Parris addresses powerful issues in her work through humourous means. Her work explores different issues and society boundaries, such as success and failure whilst also playing with ambition and aspiration. She develops the narratives in her work using different styles, the main ones being comic strips and music.

Above is her work Flightlines, which is a collaborative animation with Serhan Ahmet at BSix College.The piece explored the ideas of the word and actions of a truce.

Although, like a lot of the previous artist talks, it doesnt really connect much to my work, her comic like style narrative can be connected to my work as I have had to make a narrative style work already. If I make another I will look back on how she uses comic strips to show narration.
