Wax Works (2016)

In this series I used, wax, salt, string, newspaper, vodka, hair spay, ink, watercolours, oil paint, acrylic paint, tissue paper, glue, bubble wrap, wine glasses, masking tape, toy cars, a balance bike, cosmetic spay bottles, hair dye squeezy bottles...
Klein Pollocked (2015)
While obsessed with Yves Klein and anthropometric art, I used Pollock’s favourite paint – gloss enamel – to cover my own body.

Reading Tracey Warr’s The Artists Body with much interest.
