lava sciEne

Lava Sciene portrays the beauty of an animal usually associated with death & decay. Via colour, I have highlighted the energy of the animal and believe these paintings express notions of life.

The paintings are the product of a performance piece named 'Lava Scene' (Maggot Science) from 2008. By disregarding a piece of meat for ten weeks, I grew my own maggots. During the performance I used them  as a painting tool. 

My aim of Lava Sciene is to shock people. I want the audience to see beautiful paintings full of colour and excitement but be horrified when they realized how they were created. So far in my findings, some people walk away in disgust whilst others would stand and stare; mostly in disbelief that this animal is cable of such beauty. The original performance took place back in 2008 and since my props and imagery has been exhibited over the UK including 'Life, Death, Whatever.' at National Trust's Sutton House in Hackney, East London on behalf of the Best Funeral Guide in October 2016.
