Vanessa Wiggins’s visual imagery work draws on objects and experiences with the desire to stimulate the imagination and internal psychological responses of her audience. This visual investigation of the subject matter seeks to engage the viewer on several levels; to prompt or challenge social collective memory and to evoke the viewers’ internal dialogue of their experience.

“I love to explore the wonderful intersection between the material nature of these one of a kind, precious and historically based articles and the ephemeral nature of the digital image in the internet age. I seek to create a pause for the viewer to see the digital world through the paradigm of a more refined, artisan and bespoke framework.”
