"Serum Meter" NEW Sculpture

Serum Meter. A mystery meter encased in a strange component enclosure is connected to bloody tubes measuring fluid.

The failure of the human body is something that I explore through painting and sculpture. My visceral series “Organic Flesh Machine” combines pseudo biological items with electronic and electrical ‘found objects' embedded into the canvas. In the final sculptures the surgical combination of machine and flesh are realised, challenging the viewer to question whether these are images of surgical enhancement, medical necessity or sadistic torture.
