Bodies

While we are fed images of the ‘perfect body’ on a daily basis I think it is right to emphasise that  in the end we are all just skin, bone, hair and fat.  These photos were made to explore the human body as it is,  in a very matter of fact way without reference to ugliness or beauty.  This was my starting point for Premaruupa and a celebration of all things ‘imperfect’.  See projects.

Reading between the Lines (Heart)

 

A mixture of slip cast ceramic anatomical hearts with crumpled letters.  I liked these forms  and combined them in this piece entitled ‘Reading between the Lines’.   They tell a story.   I like the fact that it may be a different story for every individual and not one of them is right or wrong.

Memento

Of particular interest to me is our relationship with certain types of objects, in particular mementos, studying both my own and others .  The following study in film and photography, looked at one persons relationship with a piano left by her mother.  The relationship with the object reveals itself as similarly ambivalent and complex as was the individual’s relationship with her mother.  Click on any image to start Gallery.
