boobscape 2017

I just got boobscape documented for inclusion in the forthcoming book Animaladies, Bloomsbury Press, 2018.  Hopefully one of these ends up on the cover of Animaladies!

milk, motherhood and mammaries

Unpacking the works from the SPOM exhibition, which arrived back this week.  The pieces are flattened, but will drop out with a bit of hanging on the studio wall.  Added in some of the new milk pods, just because … why not.

boobscape /anemones

clusters of boob-anemones below the boobscape [I plan to link the milk strands] – creates a link between my work on dairy cows & horrors of the agricultural industry and other work on the impacts of agricultural waste/run off on the oceans … and of course many other connections and meanderings … [they are meat eating animals, etc … etc…]

Check out this ‘boobscape’ the sea anemone – cribrinospsis olegi: (mine is a little less pretty, a little more bleached out and dried skin!)
