‘Versace Crimewave’ is new series of works by artist Colin Barnes which explore the tension between a mainstream media narrative and the current climate of protest and resistance.
Barnes is interested in the manipulation of found images through experimentation and instinctive processes. He says: “I have recently referred to this (manipulation) as a search for imperfection and I have always been drawn to ideas that seem to exist outside of any established boundaries. My approach to my practice can usually involve traditional methods but essentially I seek to shift and change conventional ways of working until I feel I have presented something new and unseen.”
