About Jason Wilsher-Mills
This application is an augmented reality experience that enriches the viewers perception of the art and promotes awareness of living with disabilities from various children's perspectives.
Jason Wilsher-Mills is a disabled digital artist who is now based in the East Midlands, using iPads to create paintings which detail my disability, childhood memories, popular culture, social history/heritage, creating new biographical narratives, through theatrical artifice & humour.
I initially painted traditionally, with oils, but since becoming disabled find the iPad screen more manageable, affording me the opportunity to create large pieces of artwork, through high-resolution files, modern Giclée printing methods & projection methods.
My work demonstrates my fascination with memory, particularly from childhood, through the use of imagery from popular culture, which reflects a particular time in my life. The work features family photos, Dr Who, rugby league players, pop/film stars, industrial/social heritage etc.. All of which I interact with to create a new and revised biography for myself, which in some ways ‘remedies’ the years I spent in hospital as a child in Yorkshire.
The primary themes of the work include disability and illness, which has played such an important part of my life as a disabled person. Through the creative process I attempt to find ways to describe my daily experience.
