About Me

My photo
Liverpool, United Kingdom
My work has developed a lot over the 3 years I've studied for my degree. It has evolved into a body of work that deals with the human form as an environment. I've mapped and explored my own body inside and out in many ways through print, drawing and various media as a type of research to address self identity

..i hate modroc

I've started experimenting with plaster this week, to little success if im honest. As I stated in my last entry I wanted more of a personal twist in my work, so I began to think about body casting and the possibilties of combining my interest in surface patterns with the body.

I started off small, trying to cast easy areas such as the foot, knee etc. The foot turned out ok, but I could only get a partial cast of one side of the foot, the knee doesnt read as a part of the body, just a small lumpy shape.

Im going to try and cast some surfaces and fabrics too, just to see what happens, however I am beginning to think this may not be the right media to suit the ideas I want to put across.

In laments terms...i hated using it and it made me angry and I'm going to do something else...

I experimented with paint on the foot, to see how paint reacted with the modrock

I mean really...WHAT IS THAT!??!?!

Welcome to my blog! :)

This page is primarily a documentation of my art work I create. I'm a BA Fine Art, Mixed Media Student currently in my final year of my degree.

My work deals with ideas of the fragility of the human condition and often consists of images of my own body. I tend to work with materials that reflect the delicacy of the human form such as stitch and fabrics. My drawing style i like to describe as a "nervous" line, which also ties in with the themes of all my work.
