BA (Hons) Fine Art
The condition of mortal existence manifests in the actuality that we are not contained within the bounds of flesh. Irrefutably inevitable in our mortality is the leaking, shedding and oozing of the mental and physical body.
Blood, sweat, urine, semen, skin, hair, teeth and faeces will forever leak and fall and crumble. We do not wholly exist within our body, but also within the objects of our being, both tangibly and perceptually saturated in grotesque humanity. I aim to expose this subliminal reality, invoking discomfort and existential anxiety.
Working across media of sculpture, digital configuration, installation and collage, I am a research-driven artist employing practice to illuminate theory and vice versa. I utilise both physical and psychological aspects of daily life, focusing the visceral and the domestic in works using food, shed bodily remnants and tableware. I explore implications of mortality through deformation and ephemeral material.
