A used item has become synonomous with my practise. I feel that 50% of the contextualisation of any piece of mine is bought forward through the items own history and set value based upon the value system.
The ribcage is not essential to this piece at all. In fact, I am just trialing the process of transferring imagery using cellulose thinners. I think this is a success: it hasn’t masked the discoloured facewipe nor is the image too transparent.
