Celina Teague is a 21st century British artist. Her uber bright painted collages are a representation of our virtual worlds, which change daily and are available for consumption 24 hours a day.
Highly influenced by our morbid fascination of social media, and the impact it has on our lives, she delves into our precisely curated internet identities. The outcome is her carefully pieced together reactions- including fragments of tragic breaking news, with holidays, food and smiley faces combined in one blank canvas.
‘I Think Therefore I #’ was founded as a reaction to the violent news story of the Parisian satirial magazine Charlie Hebdo. Seeing the news portrayed as 140 characters, she has produced these words as images, and has taken inspiration from social media for an interesting insight into the mind of the general public. After all we are all storytellers in one way or another.
Showing from 6th August to 5th September, it is definitely worth a look.
