Tampon Tax

Dad's old shirt, Tampons, Pads, hot glue

Although thinking back on it 3 years later the piece feels extremely wasteful considering the cost of sanitary products and the levels of period poverty.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow

Graphite, Acrylic paint, razor

Dimensions: 148.5 x 42 cm

A piece created in response to the work of Ana Mendieta, looking at the stigma around women's bodies and body hair. Using 5 photocopies of a self portrait I "shaved" these until the figure had disappeared.
