Self Portrait; Artist’s Brain utilises the intricate, almost surgical process of contemplative embroidery to translate MRI images of my own brain. The technique takes time, it is meditative, methodical and rhythmic; a ‘slow art’ practice. The work is a study of endurance and an exploration of duality; chronicling the passage of time.

 

An exhibition of Self Portrait Artist's Brain is scheduled at .M Contemporary for April 2018. Click here for details.
