SASHA MAY MCLEAN
Sasha May Mclean’s research methodology concentrates on approaches to visual communication through traditional, often dismissed processes. Heavily influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, she utilises techniques such as embroidery and knitting to encourage the audience to interrogate their moral, social and personal relationship with objects and waste. Previously, her research was primarily focussed on the hidden potential aesthetics of waste, initially communicated through painting, print and mixed media; but traditional handicrafts seem to be a more palatable way of highlighting sombre realities. These pieces are her visual interpretation of contemporary throwaway society.
