Lush Lip Sculpture in Pietrasanta

Mixed Media

I am very happy to see this sculpture in Futura Gallery, Pietrasanta.
At first the iconic image of red lips seems titillating and a little trivial but look closer at the syringes used to create this sculpture and they may just provoke mixed reactions, discomfort, and a slightly awkward feeling that the needles are just a little bit inappropriate.
For some there are unwelcome thoughts about drug abuse and HIV from sharing needles. For others there is cosmetic surgery and botox and the desire to achieve the perfect look, for others there are fantasies of tattoos and others of childhood vaccinations, dentist injections, life saving treatment for diabetes, procreation via IVF and many more life saving medical treatments.
Look again at this work, it is loaded with hidden meanings.

Making Waves

Moving on from contours ( see Divine Object which is currently on show in Personal Structures at Palazzo Mora for the Venice Biennale ) I am creating waves.
