MARTYNA TARASZKIEWICZ - 'DETERIORATE'
This project takes old family album images and remakes them into new photomontages. Martyna is fascinated by memories, and how they act over a long period of time. Her artwork conveys a sense of lost and fractured memory.
Since we are all bound to our houses, Martyna has found creating photomontages to be a therapeutic way of working. Being a photographer and having to stay home can sometimes feel claustrophobic. She feels lucky to have found this technique that she can use to create art from home.
Martyna is passionate about the found images that you can buy off of eBay or flea markets, in particular, the unknown history behind each image. She is originally from Poland, and has lived and studied in London for the past three years. Here she discovered the art of photomontage and created a few projects dedicated to old family albums.
