I am really pleased to reveal that this new body of work will be exhibited on my stall at The Other Art Fair which takes place on the 10th – 13th of May.
The idea behind this series of 10-12 works were to explore what happens if bodies are not buried, cremated or burnt? My response is Science.
I cut various parts of the dead man’s tailoring patterns; focusing on darts and lines chalked/penciled by the cutter into A4 dimension sheets. Maclise’s 1857 dissected Victorian surgery anatomical study were then turned into pop-art vector based drawings and printed around the dart areas referencing the action of slicing – like a surgeon would into a body and a cutter would into cloth.
It is also important to highlight that the original marks of the tailor becomes an integral part of the artwork.
