Entry Title: "Mouth Piece"
Category and Expertise: Painting, Professional
By creating juxtapositions using colour and subject matter, each painting aims to unsettle, seduce or provoke the viewer. Using facial expression, distortion and different objects placed in the mouth (what I consider to be the most intimate part of the face) of each subject, each piece is intentionally designed to be visually provocative. The objects range from cheap fashion accessories, medical tools to sex toys. The viewer is encouraged to look twice and think about the purpose of each object regardless of it's context in the painting. The aim is to create awareness in the viewer, of their own preconceptions and judgements and encourage them to think and look twice.
