If you're an artist, what kind of art do you make?
Painting, Photography
I am...
a practicing artist and an MA student at Wimbledon College of Art, where I am aiming to enhance my practice and gain new opportunities.
About my artwork
My work uses painting and photography to manipulate and mask. For the last 4 years I have been using my body as a canvas by painting directly onto my face, printing this image and then painting over it. This process of layering painting and photography stage by stage displaces my 'self' and converts my body into an object upon which the paint can shine. This idea of combining painting and photography, layering, masking, and objectification has led me to experiment with painting directly on to other objects (such as porcelain figures, taxidermy, and household paraphernalia) to see what effect this has on the object and how the qualities of paint can morph an ordinary object into something very different.
Artists I like
Levi Van Veluw, Frank Auerbach, Glenn Brown, Jenny Saville, Gerhard Richter, Francis Bacon,
Painting, taking photographs, fashion, history, travelling, antiques, vintage shops
Centre of the artworld:
nowhere and everywhere

I particularly enjoyed seeing all of Warhol’s ad campaigns he took part in, like his Vidal Sassoon (shown above),… Continue
