About my artwork
In my work, the theme of skin and its impermanence has always been a constant -- from the use of wax in painting, to create a textural body, which emerged from the surface to the elastic skin of a model I collaborated with and photographed for 7 years until his death. I am now making heads using pieces of latex Halloween masks pieced together with stainless steel pins. I find that latex is a very tactile and sensuous medium in which to convey my ideas of the flesh. These works are primarily inspired by cosmetic plastic surgery, African art, ritual objects and painting references. These heads display many of the features people want to rid themselves of or prevent by means of plastic surgery, namely aging wrinkles, deformities, discolorations, exaggerated features; etc. -- the list of "imperfections" is very long. These heads are also intended to address society's pressure for "perfect beauty", eternal youth and conformity.

Hello!

Very fascinated by your work. Well crafted and rich of content. Halloween masks beyond scary.

By the way: Heard of the norwegian artist Kjartan Slettemark? Your sculptures remind me a bit of his work.

Grotesque maybe but so much effort and work - unusual take on beauty, very clever, I think you have created some amazing sculptural pieces !! Jo

Nice, sick sculptures. The last one, the one with two heads, twins , is my favourite.

thanks back at you Janice. Not sure it's a congratulatory move coming here, but certainly a more organic one. Lots of beautiful flora and fauna here!

The new work looks wondeful Janice. I like the mutliple heads etc. Great!
