Dunlevie’s digital works represent a dramatic shift in her approach. Instead of using real scissors and paste, she has digitally collaged these images in Photoshop. Working with pre-existing stencil shapes from the software program, Dunlevie has layered disparate images to create each of these pieces. Through the stenciled shapes that pierce the dominant image, the viewer catches glimpses of the images beneath. However, Dunlevie does not provide us with enough information to determine what those might be. In these mysterious works, her deception is fully realized. These seamlessly grafted compositions, which seem to capture parallel universes, most perfectly distort the notion of space and time.
