"My name is Audrey Gillespie, I'm a Fine Art student from Derry, Northern Ireland. I'm currently based in Belfast N.I"
Photographing queer youth, drag and my own existential crisis with femininity my works create bold but ambient scenes, inviting the viewer to submerge into a world of emotion driven by a hazy aesthetic. Using lo-fi techniques to create an unpolished grungy form with 35mm format photography and 90’s camcorders, block colours glaze the moments where the celestial gloom of my subjects lurk. Mixed media, screen print and other forms of collage have taken shape within this photographic series as part of a side project of experimental works.
