The Unwrapped series touches on aspects of the human psyche, individualism, perfectionism, escapism, overall a sense of self-obsession self-destructing.
The Neoliberal ideal is failing. The fashion styled images are vibrant and seductive, some with a vein of humour. They are the antithesis of the scenarios being played out as the cracks appear on the facade.
About Gary Sheridan
It was whilst studying photography at the University of Wolverhampton in the UK that I found a passion for conceptual photography. My work draws on personal experience and a natural inquisitiveness in human behaviour.
I construct (often building sets in the studio) a series of work from a concept, such as in the recent work – Unwrapped. Whichever method of construction used, I intend the images to be multi-layered and engage the viewer thoughtfully and aesthetically. My work is often vibrant, beautiful and seductive with a vein of humour, just as life should be, yet life is often not a bed of roses and the work often reveals a troubled society. [Official Website]
