Developing concept within the artwork.

This first trial was the concept used from option two in my previous blog post, “What i want to say”. I decided not to use these words in the end.
After I had gathered together all of the words people have said to me over the years, started adding the phrases, crowding the arm.
By painting hot wax over the tissue, the words remain, but the tissue disappears, creating a tattoo-like effect.


Some words I buried deeper than others to represent how long ago they were said, or how forgotten they are. Almost as though they are buried further within my subconscious… they are harder to see from the outside, but also harder to remove.
