A major inspiration to the current project is the current Channel 4 documentary 'Beauty and the Beast; The Ugly Face of Prejudice', which looks into the lives of people with facial disfigurement.


Another trial from one of the photos i took earlier of Ben Brooks. This one is much larger and more detailed than the last. Plays well with the theme of ambiguity as well as the the feature of time in my work. Its hard to work out what we are looking at.. one face? two faces? its human but there is something that is so wrong about it.. Thats kind of what i was aiming for!!

It's been a little while since i have updated my blog as i have been out and about exploring London and such like in order to see what is out there! I have been grabbed by the work of Clarisse d'Arcimoles, her work is currently on show in the Saatchi Gallery on Sloane Square. Her work shows an exciting take on the relationship between old and young and the passing of time, which is also the basis of my work in light of the lyric, 'We have no time to stand and stare...'
