Graeme Messer, ‘I’m the belle of the ball’, 2017, Flat Space Art

Graeme Messer is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in London. Drawing on his background in theatre, Graeme interweaves performance with assemblage, light-art and the written word to create an art that is direct, funny, moving, uncomfortable and unashamedly autobiographical. Using a unique combination of etching and LED technology to adapt mirrors from a variety of sources including a 1930’s funfair and a WWII tank, Graeme illuminates our daily fears and fantasies with wry humour and brutal honesty. Misshapen rectangular Vintage mirror, etching with LED light panel with the text: I'm the belle of the ball. Messer hopes that by truly looking, overtime the nature of the mirror will allow the viewer to experience the message and meaning behind the words. A great contemporary piece. Invest in Art, Art is for Life.
