2017 Finalists

Jack BALL

Artist statement: In ‘Low res, high vis 4’, I am thinking about the shower as a kind of stage, where a private routine becomes a performative moment for the gallery. This work is part of a larger series that explores queer and trans intimacy and desire through collage processes. I re-photograph my printed images multiple times to embellish, pull apart and remake them. I work with crunchy pixels, ‘too much’ saturated colour and lo-fi editing techniques. My engagement with collage methods in this series reflects how I think about my skin, body hair, and testosterone – as materials with histories that are flexible and in process.
