Artist Statement

Janine McGuinness’ digital art practice concerns disconnection and juxtapositions in urban landscapes and associated social tensions and psychological states – especially in Australian suburbs. The strong contrast, highly saturated colour and associated digital effects of photographic works invite the viewer to reflect on the nature and form of social disconnections and tensions in those contexts.
