Maria Fielding MFA
With a Masters in Fine Art, I am an artist/designer/illustrator.
Having a lifelong interest in comedy and humour, I was surprised to find that in creating humour it led to the darkest of spaces.
This work is an exploration into a monistic view of humour and terror. The sublime and the ridiculous. What we find funny is often relative to where we have our greatest anxieties. The absurd, a world where the boundaries blur.
Where I have 'tried' to be funny I find myself most disturbed. Where I create work from being the most disturbed, I often find most humour. The relationship of these emotions is where I found my love of the sublime.
I work in a mix of mediums from pencil and oils to digital and film. I will be showing a few short films also.
