Artist Thomas Ruff uses hardcore porn movies and takes appropriated stills from movies to make his work shown above. He makes the images so low resolution that they come across as being censored. I decided to look at Thomas Ruffs work as I’m using the idea of censoring within my work to cover up the images I’m using. Unlike Thomas Ruff however I do not want the viewers to know that my work is made up of hardcore pornography images, I want mine to show the beauty of the colours and that’s it.
