Event description

Description

Opens Friday 10 November, 6-8 pm

Memory for $ale is Jacqueline MacLeod’s exploration of female online identity, questioning how networked technologies influence women and the relationships women have with each other; ‘groups’, online ‘friends’, cyber-security, social online discourse and the forming of self.

Macleod is drawn to the aesthetic and economic relationship that exists between the virtual and physical life, describing her work as “constructed portraiture”.

The finely detailed, not-quite-photo-realistic paintings and digital prints of people who have never actually existed are modelled first in a collage, then computer and later rendered in oil paint.

Macleod’s focus on the effects of digital media within female identity and the forming of multiple selves on online platforms alongside who you are in reality, challenges our reliance on and captivation with technology.

Much of Macleod’s work to-date has consisted of figures that interact with a combination of oil painting and digital work and more recently sculpture.
