Love Me for Myself
I Dream in RGB
Love Me For Myself is about a speculative choice to externally represent oneself as a mood, notion or inkling. The title is imbued with paradox because in this future you can characterise yourself in limitless ways, therefore potentially never revealing your true self. Multi-disciplinary artist I dream in RGB remixes traditional female media representations to transform and disrupt outmoded signifiers. The artist questions deeply ingrained constructs by recontextualising found imagery. This is achieved through collage, layering and digital effects, together with actions of visual experimentation. An altering of female forms converts obsolete exemplifiers of the female facade. The disruption of the posed figure dislocates early twenty-first century media messages that make women feel inferior. The artwork was developed to enhance a renewed female perspective.
I dream in RGB aka Andrea Draper is a multimedia artist who investigates the complexities of female identity in popular culture. Draper uses customised and found imagery to recontextualise original female portrayals depicting traditional beauty. Images and footage are remixed to disrupt and transform signifiers, creating moving images that support broader female representations.
