Rianna Cooper



Artist’s Statement

Questioning mortality is something many people find challenging. The thought of growing older is somewhat daunting, emphasised by the unanswered state which proceeds us with death. Rianna Cooper’s work explores and questions mortality and ageing through text and image, capturing intimate portraits of her loved ones, those who have given her life and contributed to the woman she is today. Her work confronts the inevitability of death whilst celebrating life, aiming to create a realisation that time is a precious thing and death is a common factor of life for everyone.
