MA Fine Art | Class of 2020
I’ve always been interested in the human form and the idea of perfection. What makes something perfect? As I thought about what project I’d like to work towards I was introduced to the physics concept of spaghettification, in which an object would be stretched or torn by falling into a black hole. This gave me the idea of how I could tackle this in my art. How could I distort a face, or a body part? To make something that society needs to be seen as perfect, imperfect and unsightly. This thinking is what has led to this body of work. I wanted to focus on the body but have also included works focusing on the face, which isn’t something I normally do. It’s a lot of pressure to make a face perfect, so being able to experiment and make something weird was a welcome practice.
