LISA TURNER
ARTIST STATEMENT

During the past nine years, my artistic practice has made use of popular imagery to examine mass media, material culture and consumerism. In particular I am interested in the vast number of products available for purchase online today and the contemporary buying behavior that results from computers offering a 24-hour shop window. This modern convenience of online shopping has led me to create work that reinterprets this experience and the items for sale, while exploring themes of desire, security and happiness, within contemporary culture.
