A series of sculptures and an artist’s video exploring the seductive, optimistic qualities of ‘bling.’ Borrowing the aesthetics and techniques of YouTube ‘DIY’ vloggers, the practice of ‘hand-blinging’ is re-imagined as a 21st century folk art, via unlikely ‘blinged out’ objects.
In March 2017, I bought an old capsule vending machine on Ebay and reconditioned it in the millennial hues of the moment; marble, rose gold and pink.
In May 2017, I used Swarovski crystals to embellish two speculums in honour of Cervical Health Day.
