Reblog for writer friends…who don’t have internet currently damnit.
Lol, Link’s not angry here. The lighting nor camera were the best at the time these pictures were taken, and the fact he squints a lot, would perhaps give an angry expression. But he’s a happy-go-lucky guy who is a classic goof.
This work explores erosion and the disruption of form. Focusing on biological erosion, I wanted to convey the idea of a host being attacked and eaten away by a parasitic virus, highlighting the creeping spread of the infection as it corrupts the body. I have produced a series of angular porcelain forms, sandblasted to wear the surface and reveal inner strata. This aggressive process, contrarily, creates a delicate vulnerability in the shape. The translucency of the porcelain and the interruption of the surface make it possible to glimpse through to layers beneath, creating a tension between the seen and the obscured.
