Glasgow based artist Hazel Gore specialises in producing drawings and paintings to create detailed dream like images that tell a story. Within Gore’s paintings there is a vivid definition between the characters and landscape. Using a familiar setting Gore is able to create a relationship with the user however by rendering her paintings in surreal colours and adding ‘misfit’ characters Gore creates a dream like appearance-almost as if there is something missing in the world of her paintings. As well as being a talented artist Hazel Gore also produces short films with surreal themes that relate to her artwork. Gore’s films have been screened in venues around the world including Venice, San Fransisco, Sydney and London
For Gore, the creative process begins with writing, creating characters and creating themes that relate directly or indirectly to the overall theme of her work. Each body of work produced by Gore has its own story, its own beginning and moment of inspiration. Gore uses her character creation to subtly communicate a metaphorical or symbolic meaning to the viewer.
