Cleo Mussi: artist’s statement

Cleo Mussi

“We live in a world of increasingly complex information and choices, bombarded by sound bites and attention grabbing sensationalist headlines. To the lay person, news about medical advancement often appears to be expressed through polar opposites – fear mongering over ‘Frankenstein’ experiments versus celebration of life saving/enhancing developments.

“The internet has become a double edged sword in this communication process, providing opportunities for research and discovery which allow us the pleasure of feeling in control, while simultaneously unleashing the overwhelming weight of responsibility that accompanies knowledge, proving that ignorance can still sometimes be bliss.”

Cleo Mussi’s Farmer’s Market is at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery, Honiton from September 24 to November 12.
