As a result of my graduate degree, the series: ‘Abject Nudes’ embodies allusions to the female nude; from life drawing and historical research, and abjection theory. These ambiguous corporeal forms depict liminal landscapes of supple and hard, broken and complete, rough and soft, flesh and ceramic. Each piece is a fragmentation of my own sketches of the female body, handcrafted with my feelings, experience and emotion, injected within their form and surface. Washes of colour, either accentuated or disguised with washes of porcelain, mimic my painting style, bringing marks of raw tenderness and delicacy to life.
