NB: The frame border shown is part of the photograph not a supplied frame. This is a Lambda print on C-type photographic paper. All our prints come with a certificate signed by the artist and a unique edition number. The prints are produced with a white border around the photograph to allow for framing. We also have included some cotton gloves to protect the print during handling.

Maggy Milner physically conjures photographs rather than just takes them. Playing with ideas of photographic reality, in "Consuming Passions" she has subverted our ideas about the photographic montage.

Avoiding the digital process of image manipulation Maggy created a constructed tableaux, which she then photographed. Taking a picture frame and gradually filling it with objects to build a composition for the camera, she created fanciful scenes that have a 3-D impression of depth. Influenced by the painter Juan Sanchez Cotan, she suspended fish on thread and created the illusion of them swimming in a vase, amongst coloured tinsel and foil and a scattering of house plants.

There is a strong sense of play in these images, in which the beautiful use of colour and carefully composed stage sets result in a vibrant and humorous modern day still lifes.
