Uncovered Covers (Collagraphic Monoprints with Pencil (ongoing series)
These Collagraphic Monoprints are made from printed gendered coverings, including ‘real’ surfaces like human hair, mixed with ‘artificial’ ones, such as lace, ribbon, hairnets, and tights. They intersect with hand drawn elements that are reminiscent of female reproductive anatomy (fallopian tubes, milk ducts and vagina-like parts). These pieces play with notions of the ‘monstrous feminine’, intending to provoke desire and disgust at the unbounded female body. Borders are playfully transgressed as outer feminine coverings are integrated with internal female body parts, permeating between seductive textures, protective layers and visceral embodiment.
