EXHIBITION: 'Video stills' BY SUSANNA DOUGLAS at paper gallery

Susannah Douglas makes small drawings in pencil and ink working from amateur photographs and videos sourced from the Internet. The works depict generic or well-known content and reproduces them, cropping, repeating and mirroring them to create an overwhelming response.
For her solo exhibition at PAPER, Douglas has focused upon images of a figure dressed up as 3D representations of fictional 2D characters. These stills are sourced from holiday videos uploaded to YouTube. Each time another picture of Mickey Mouse is uploaded to the Internet the person portrayed starts to disappear while another image of Mickey Mouse comes into existence.

Exhibition dates: 29th Feb - 11th April

Opening times: Saturday's 11am - 5pm
