LITTLE BODIES is a series of casts of a single clay sculpture. Each cast is in a different material including jelly, chocolate, resins and bronze. It re-evaluates my work with the female form and questions what is the proper use of the female form in fine art. The project began with an exploration of distorted female forms in clay. It has touched on the philosophy of the feminine, feminist and female and it has investigated the 'baggage' of materials. It comes with a playful soundtrack that accompanied a disco light-box plinth.
BODIES is a series of clay sculptures and body casts, creating a set of alter-egos: a docufictional representation of times when the body takes the brunt of life choices.
TIME is a study of hands and represents the idea of the perfect family. The piece is a result of research into the concept of family during crisis, the expectation of support and love, the disbelief of loss and displacement.
Incarcerated started as a study in narcissism as a response to my own questions about art being a valuable and practical way to spend time.
In this fun but macabre project I played with the idea of a women falling from a suspended clock face, along with each hour of the day, to break apart upon impact.
