William speaks (film still) © Hayley Lock 2012
Multi disciplinary collage from a mix of ideas taken from portraiture, landscape, folklore and symbolism to create an alternative secret society of the imaginary.
Lock's practice straddles fact and fiction, truth and the fake. Weaving new narratives of history and myth through a complicated and sometimes mysterious tale of heartache of heartache, lust and delusional thinking, Lock allows her practice to accumulate, take unfathomable journeys and elicit deceit to create part encrypted biography and part parallel histories through drawing, collage, sculpture and sound.
