Francesca Larkin: Image Artefacts

Francesca Larkin: Image Artefacts

Lives and works in Aachen, Nordhrhein Westfalen, Germany

My work is a synthesis of analogue and digital image-making processes that observes and recreates the visual language of internet pop culture as seen in memes, TikToks, and the image manipulation of app filters and imaging technology. My process begins with sifting through the torrent of mainstream imagery and the weirdest, most niche corners of the internet, to lift and archive iconic viral subjects and discomfiting internet oddities. On my graphic tablet, I draw these image artefacts into scenes and portraits of online culture, where the mundane and uncanny can converge and turn meaning-making into an elusive undertaking.
