"Part nightmare, part fantasy, part reality, this piece is an expression of my ambivalence towards celebrity la la land.

 

In this scene, the celebs have literally leeched all the colour from the world around them and taken it for themselves to achieve ephemeral glamour.

 

The work is a lament to all the minutes and hours I could have spent wandering along tranquil leafy lanes instead of reading Heat magazine, but also a a celebration of the shoes, outfits, fake tans and big hair - an evocation of how grey the world would be if the celebs weren't there."

 

It won second prize - a Superman bath paints kit which I swapped for the Glitzy Play Fun Fair Kit (100% FUN).
