⭐ Bunker Gallery Presents Tunnel Vision. An exhibition showing a selection of work by Genevieve Slater. ⭐

Genevieve Slater creates moments that draw on the comical catastrophe of our basic human experience. By elevating the ordinary and everyday, and drawing on the humour found in the all consuming nature of the human condition, Slater considers our obsession with ourselves. Motivated by a yearning for a common bond and shared oneness, Slater aims to instil a sense empathy in her audience. Contemplating the nuances of feeling and the jeopardy, tragedy and hilarity found in our idiosyncrasies, she acknowledges the magnitude of the trivial, highlighting the universality of the individual struggle.

Inspired by the accessibility and frankness of cartoon, and its ability to comment on, but not be anchored to reality, Slater harnesses it’s reductive strength as an almost form of shorthand for emotion. Paying homage to it’s application within society, its ability to address both “high" and “low” culture and the perversity of the not-so-serious documenting the serious, Slater translates this, applying it to the very fundamentals of how we are.

Firstly a painter, Genevieve’s practice also incorporates other 2D mediums including print, drawing and digital image.
