In ‘The Portfolio of…’ I give you, the photographer/ designer, a chance to share your work with the world. Everyone likes to get some attention for their works, and we’re here to help. Submit your portfolio to us and I’ll try to publish it. Today it’s time to show you the work of Chantel Schott.
Art is a form of communication and a connection to life’s responses to stimuli. It connects us to meaning and influences our perceptions, moods and feelings. The themes I am exploring with my current work serve as a metaphor for the term ‘vintage’. A world of colour, collage and delicate line work gives an anticipation of the familiar becoming extraordinary. Recycled items including vintage magazines and books, portions of my original artworks, text, photographs and found objects are used to alter sense of place and time. In this context it’s all about my mind’s eye and a world of imagination. My objective is to build pathways between past, present and a possible future of contemporary imagery using elements of myth-making and dream-states to reconstruct images which may potentially one day be considered ‘vintage’.
