'Dissecting string and paper 2'

'Dissecting string and paper 2'

My inquiry into latex led me to the sewing machine. I love sewing machines, they are so versatile and they add such interesting marks and forms to my work. The latex was peeled off a found image in an old encyclopedia. I then proceeded to investigate into the qualities of the latex once it was sewn and out of the experiment came this lovely piece which is in a 7"x5" frame, painted a glossy black.

  1. I like this. It has a skin like quality, kind of macabre in the sense of it being ripped and then stitched and the stitching down the centre looking like an open spine.
