Cleo Gardiner is a cross disciplinary, conceptual artist. Her work includes the exploration of issues relating to identity, icons, desire, class, sexuality, size positive representations of the body, gender & gender identities. Her work often includes text which illustrates how words can inspire, rupture and embrace ones self. She suggests, through text and icons, we see parts of ourselves mirrored as a jigsaw of positive and diverse referents. Ones, which observe and honour our varied differences. Through works like XX-Class/if/y she celebrates the joy of words and how they mark, commemorate and even liberate us. Her intertextual collages of text, map cultural and collective memory. illustrating a personal journey, an unravelling or unbecoming to become.
