My work incorporates the two mediums of painting and photography. I have a great interest in the materiality and substance of paint, and execute this interest through photography, creating a juxtaposition of the two mediums.
I photograph the act of painting on to my skin and then paint on top of the photographs, creating a layering of image of paint and painted image. My body becomes the canvas for the paint, questioning the traditional concept of painting and portraiture, and the barriers between painting and photography.
The body becomes both object and subject in the work.
