Things That Where Said
Online dating can be a brutal experience. People say things hidden behind a keyboard that they would never say to someone’s face. This series of work looks at dating experiences from a female point of view. The main emphasis of this series is the difference between the romantic fantasy of meeting your soul mate and the reality of what was experienced. The printed text used as the background for the work is Mills and Boon book pages, representing the fantasy romance, and the crystal decorations and heart motif represent the desire. Unfortunate the sentiments do not match the overtly romantic and feminine colours and patterns. All the words are things that have been said to me, whilst trying online dating.
