In this piece I explore self harm and its effectiveness as a coping mechanism. I explore its positive, cathartic aspects whilst also providing a representation of the twisted broken mess it leaves behind.
This is an issue very dear to me.
The piece is intended to be shown lain atop a sheet metal bed in the centre of a well lit studio.
I combine abstractions and realism to create what I deem to be as object a representation of the experience of self harm as possible.
The piece depicts a wounded, dismembered body bandaged across it’s middle and wrapped in bloody cellophane.
