Ian Segrave explores the boundary between reality and an idealistic idea of the former. The idea that memories can lose cohesion over time to create a fictional event in the mind, often resulting in a darker story provides a foundation for his subject. Segrave uses composition and layers of mixed media to lead the mind to a more sinister unreality, combining influences of personal memories and dark themes from horror novels. Depth of field and unusual perspectives combine to unearth a memory seen through a tinted window and consider how fine the line is between real and unreal.
