Garden of Purity considers how we read and ingest imagery, drawing links through history from art history to advertising. Duffy sees the works as being a layered conversation about Catholicism, advertising, abjection, and queerness.

She uses edible materials as a starting point for the series of digitally manipulated photographs in the light boxes and online video works. The series intends to prompt questions about traditional notions of beauty and divinity by blurring the lines between repulsion and desire.

To view the video artworks and read the text that is part of the series, visit the website.

Artist Laura Duffy lives and works in Wellington. Having graduated from Massey University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts, 2011, 1st class honours. Primarily a video artist Laura Duffy also works with still imagery and sculpture. Duffy is a studio artist as well as facilitator at artist run gallery Meanwhile.
