I was finishing up Bach Fine Arts in 2004, when I drew this picture about lack of money,

and it seemingly just going down the drain.

The candle represents energy running out, it’s late, and the cup of tea now tastes like sand. So much study! Lol

 

 

 

CARDIGAN COAT: BLOCK MOUNT SCREEN PRINTS SERIES

 

 

 

Blockmount Screen Print. November 2004

This block mount screen print is in a series consisting of: ‘Fag ‘n Wine ;  ‘Dolly’;

‘And They All Charged In Like Malee Bulls’ ; Glomeshh Monster; and,  ‘The Four Oddballs’.

This drawing is working with positive and negative spacing, giving a clear ‘paper cutout’ effect.

 

 

 

AND THEY ALL CHARGED IN LIKE MALEE BULLS: BLOCKMOUNT SCREEN PRINT SERIES.

 

 

 

Block Mount Screen Print. 2004

This is one of a series of six. The others are: ‘Glomessh Monster’; ‘Dolly’;

‘Fag ‘N Wine’; ‘The Four Oddballs’; and  ‘ Cardigan Coat’. This screenprint

is about the tests that uni teachers always play on their students to get them confused and to think harder.
Two particular teachers suggested me to do different instructions:

One was to make sure there was order and no ring ins for the exhibitions

and that  all of the works had to be connected in some way to each other. The other teacher told me to not worry about anything and to

do anything I liked.  I listened to my gut, and put everything into a connection.

I drew this picture as it was about the instructions, and it connected other sculptures I wanted to put into the exhibition.

Now all was connected. The ‘charging in like malee bulls’ was about other teachers

all having their say about what I should be doing.

Block Mount Screen Print. November 2004

This work is a study in how inanimate square linking blocks can actually

create organic shapes when linked together.

DOLLY : BLOCK MOUNT SCREEN PRINT SERIES

 

 

Block Mount Screen Print. 2004

This is one of a series of six block mounted screen prints.
The other works are: ‘Cardigan Coat’; ‘And They All Rushed In Like Malee Bulls’; Glomeshh Monster’; The Four Oddballs’; and ‘Fag ‘N Wine’.

This work is a conceptual piece regarding the loss of a little kitten named ‘Dolly’.

Images show the angst, the ritual of burial, the natural disaster symbol,

and the thoughts of loss running around within the head itself.

 

 

 

 

THE BEAUTY MYTH SERIES- BUSTS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Top: Bust made of graphite and cement, with treatment finishes. 2004

Below:  Bust made of plaster and latex with embellishments of needlework, stitching and cotton thread.

Like The Beauty Myth Series photographic images in this section, these two busts portray the inner female,

and the outer female. The top bust showing a female with one eye open, and the other eye closed.

 Her hair ornately coiffed. She is the inner part of the female psyche. The Animus.

The bust below represents the female with a face made of latex (representing plastic surgery).

On one side of the face, the latex has been cut open from the molding underneath,

then resewn representing the stitching required for remodeling.

Here too, her hair is coiffed, and her face renewed.

She too, still looks inward, but her exterior represents the Anima,

which is needed to take on the action and causality in deduction and change.

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE BEAUTY MYTH SERIES

 

 

 

 

Photographic manipulated images. 2004. W.S.U.

Anna Boros as Artist As Director and Model,  & Craig Lewin, Photographer.

These images portray the narrative of the ‘before’s and after’s’

of what plastic surgery effect can have on females: the first image shows the contemplative possible sacrifice and self awareness.

The thought of not being perfect enough- purely a cultural reasoning.

The 2nd image shows the privacy needed in that contemplation and decision making.

The third image portraying the possible kickbacks of judgment by others and her expressed resentment toward

others because of their judgment.

The fourth image shows the end result of ‘plastic’ confidence, and whether the confidence

is through actualisation through the surgery, or the self  assurance of the final decision making.

The book titled ‘The Beauty Myth’ by Naomi Wolf, is a very interesting book regarding how our

cultural images are used against women in our society. You can read an interesting dialogue on the book in Wiki.

Just type in the title of the book. Happy reading.
