I am not in my body
Plaster-cast drypoint tile, 10 x 10cm, 2020.
Handmade plaster tile, cast by the artist with an original drypoint etching plate. These tiles are a part of the 'aching chronicles' series and play with themes surrounding chronic pain.
Looking to expand definitions of printmaking, the artist began experimenting with plaster as a print material. Inexpensive and accessible, plaster casting acts as an exciting alternative to printing with a traditional printing press. The process is unpredictable, yielding mixed and often unexpected results.
Interested in construction materials as their own printing substrate, the introduction of plaster into the series has been a natural experimental progression of the works. Plaster acts as both an industrial material used to patch and sculpt, and a medical grade casting material used to literally scaffold the body. Plaster as a material is incredibly tactile to the artist as the maker, and its fragility can be compared to the fragility of skin.
