Artist - Discover Contemporary Art Prints & Printmaking

Theadora is a multi-disciplinary artist specialising in print and video. She has recently completed her masters in print and has a studio at Estate of the Arts.

In much of her work mundane utensils become monumental industrial components, a transformation that elevates them into objects of aesthetic consideration and bizarre emblems of middle-class terror. Her enlargement of these objects are not a critique of consumer habits but a celebration of the surreal – a playful conceit on the rich history of the English pastoral.

Probing at our sense of perception, her use of the textures and antiquated processes of traditional printmaking, produces a false sense of legitimacy, one that is at odds with most contemporary image production.
