Molly Rooke uses various modes of mechanical reproduction including screen-printing, lithography and digital media.
Her process is intensive, requiring layers of selecting, editing and archiving. Specifically Rooke is concerned with the incidental elements of images such as strangers caught accidentally in the backgrounds of amateur photographs. These individual are the isolated and promoted to become the main subject of the piece, providing a means by which the peripheral and unintentional become significant. This transformative process causes new narratives and renegotiates originally intended meanings, posing questions about familiarity, privacy, secrecy and voyeurism.
Exhibited at Griffin Gallery in Young Gods in January 2014.
