‘Volt Introduces’ ten young artists from UCA Epsom to display their upcoming graduate work.

Annabel Rae Moretti experimented with styling during this personal project, she was inspired by modern materials, sportswear and the patterns and textures used within African culture.

Volt Café: What is your best childhood memory?
Annabel Rae Moretti: Chip sandwiches on Porthmeor beach.

How would you describe your work aesthetics?
ARM: Playful, natural and sexy. I always try to create a narrative by giving the subject context within their environment.

VC: What is your favourite piece of clothing from your wardrobe?
ARM: My leather jacket, it’s the only thing I would never eBay for cocktail money.

VC: Who has influenced your career the most (and why)?
ARM: My parents. I grew up in a very creative household. Both my parents illustrate the possibilities and satisfaction in turning your creative passion into a career, and support me in doing the same.

What kind of films do you enjoy?
ARM: I like films that are grippingly mundane but I also enjoy the escapism of films that are totally surreal. I’m always drawn to films with interesting visual styles, and of course anything with Tom Hardy.

The work of the students will be presented during the month September. Special thanks to PUMA for their support. We’ll update you with more information closer to the date.
