ObjectImage is a poignant approach to the physical material of a photograph and a re-imagination of it into new forms. ObjectImage roots itself in album collections of the artist and others that are linked to the social tradition and history of documenting family.
Through collage, Tulloch maintains a thread between past and future with her ability to form new connections within the image composition. The work continues to evolve including the use of contemporary newspaper images. Tulloch’s use of photomontage allows her to re-focus the media, re-compose the image and ultimately re-find and re-purpose the photographic subject.
Sarah Tulloch holds a First Class honors degree from the Bristol School of Art and a Design and Distinction, Master of Fine Arts from Newcastle University. She concentrates on a close-range investigation of found photographs as both objects with specific material qualities and images in themselves. Her book, published by Daylight Books, is supported by the Arts Council England. Tulloch has been exhibited by Plus Arts Projects, the Mayor’s Parlour, London, Baltic 39, and MIMA Emerging Curators.
