A photographic work exploring the body, skin and the materiality of stone. Shot on the Greek island of Delos the series depicts six fragmented marble statues that were badly restored in the 1960s. The oxidized filler and crumbling concrete that they were restored with appears as bruising and rashes on skin. The photographs are encased in concrete frames and hung over a vinyl image of skin surfaces with bruising, each of these bruises however is covered by another image and the final bruise is masked by one of the framed photographs, thus the ‘bruising’ visible to the viewer is only on the marble surfaces of the sculptures.
‘Bruised’. 2019. Archival print on Somerset, concrete, vinyl on wall. 220 x 770cm
