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 think I'm now on pyramid number 96. I'm aiming for 200 which is easily achievable if I already have nearly 100. So I may aim for 300...but Im not sure how much space that would fill up...

In my mind the installation would fill the space and feel quite invasive. My work has always dealt with emotions attached to insecurities and anaylising ones own body, so to feel like your personal space is being invaded by these pyramids relates to how much these feelings invade your mind. Sometimes it can become overwhelming, and its a growning problem in society for young people. I chose the shape because its a prism,a shape which cuts light into the spectral colours. This splitting of light reminded me of how we mentally cut ourselves up by scrutinising different areas of our body, with each colour representing a different area. To contrast this I kept the work black and white,and used no colour at all, as a point that these feelings often take away any joy or "colour" we once had.

These are some photos I took in the print studio with a better camera.

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.
