Seeing Itself

In painting choreographed mounds of meat, my recent work speaks to analogies of the body as canvas and paint as flesh. "seeing Itself" offers an immersive experience in to my paintings with the intention of reminding the viewers they are animals. Large scale meat-mounds emerge from the dark space in this baroque installation at Arthaus Contemporary. In encountering the flesh of other animals reproduced at scale, indeed animals which humans frequently consume in order to survive - viewers might recognise themselves as meat. In so doing, they may be increasingly aware of the act of spectatorship as embodied within a complex system of flesh contemplating itself- conscious meat.
