In both my practical work and my written analysis, I investigate the idea of hiding in plain sight in art, how an image can be hidden but also right in front of you. I give a narrative account of my own practice which explores how the theme originated, reoccurred and developed in my work over the years and the way it now features in my practice, along with a deep account of the process and my thinking whilst creating the work for my MA exhibition. In exploring my work and the work of others who have influenced it I use particularly the ideas of, the unconscious (especially with reference to Sigmund Freud), chance and randomness in art. I go on to draw some general conclusions about the work I have recently made and its relevance for my future art practice and research and for that of others.
