The Fluidity series investigates several themes pertaining to femininity, gender relationships, bodily fluids and the ideals of “perfection”. The series is an exploration of a dark, twisted underbelly within our society, however seeks to contrast this with the possibility that not all is lost through the use of bright colours, surreal imagery and mythical characters.
Sedate Me & Fluid (Digital Print, 2014)
Dark, twisted and bound by perfection there comes a point when nature will take over our bodies and devour our own sense of self. Fluid and Sedate Me are an emotional explosion of our insecurities breaking free from society's expectations of what is considered "perfect".
Envy (Digital Print, 2015)
“Envy” explores a dystopic world deep in the Amazon rainforest where envious females and native wildlife tear feverishly at the body of a fallen beauty. The work questions the ability for women to support and uplift one another and the impact this has on the environment. We all have extraordinary abilities, some more hidden than others, but if we encourage each other imagine what we could achieve.
Submerged Series 01 & 02 (Digital Prints, 2015)
This series of works explores the embarrassing societal stigma surrounding bodily fluids and all their oozing glory. Bloody vaginas, milky breasts, leaky penises and dripping faeces - if seen outside the human body - are condemned. Shamed into a corner, individuals are made to feel inferior when their bodies go their own merry way. We do not always have total control. We should not feel ashamed when we do not. Born with autoimmune diseases I know the difficulty, embarrassment and emotional pain of trying to keep fluids in check. Drawing on both nature's patterns and colours alongside kitsch pop-cultural forms Submerged delves into a surreal fantasy-land that is cute and vibrantly colourful on the surface, but disturbingly sinister underneath. Dripping with blood, saliva and other flowing delights, the Submerged series is a visual experience, which challenges the humiliation society places on normal bodily processes.
