Pearl Thompson / Illustration BA(Hons)

My work revolves around the bizarre, especially within history and science, taking on whichever medium the subject requires. The book ‘Ways of Dying’ was based on a list of deaths within London in 1632 in which I created an illustration to represent each ailment with its modern translation. This project resulting in mask-making, collage, mono-printing, 3D sculptures from fabric and found objects. My final project carried on the theme of the human condition. I made an experimental film based around the effects of the invisible enemy Radiation and its effects on the human body.
