During Grimes’ 2018 Bridget Riley Fellowship at The British School at Rome she segued from thieving Lorenzetti tartans and cartoon detail from Etruscan paintings, to the appropriation of neorealist films - mis-remembered, imitated and low tech re- enacted: a physical drawing of herself captured on i-phone.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
A set of three fuzzy-felt warrior puppets, battling against unseen predators. Their defining nature and only hope is their quickness and lightness. What Calvino calls, “the irreplaceable outline of all human stories.”
