Today involved a day in the studios with good old fashioned pencil and paper. My practice focuses on the body and our changing perception of ourselves due to the bombardment of ‘perfect magazine advertisements. I began with some one line drawings from images in magazines on found bits of paper. Not a lot beats a fresh piece of paper to draw on, weather it be parcel paper, newsprint, envelopes or luggage tags! Gradually the drawings evolved and soon included bits of ripped adverts from magazine with PVA and white paint. they are almost mini versions of part of my work Im creating for the degree show.
