Inside of Me - I am Inside My Body 2021

A series of mono prints about my body and how I feel about living inside of it. These images are really crude basic androgenous figures. They are in fleshy tones of red, pink and orange of internal organs. The ink spread over textured paper to give a mottled effect which contrasts with visceral quality of the vivid images.

Within my own body having had Crohn’s disease most of my adult life, I have felt my guts were my enemy, a discursive and troublesome side of me. That should to be squashed like a naughty child, that was holding me back. Instead, I should maybe have been listening to my gut feelings as the intuitive all-knowing part of me that can send out useful signals.
