Self-Portrait, Reclining

White stoneware, coil built, cone 5 oxidation, glaze and acrylic paint, velvet pillow

22 x 18 x 11



Self-Portrait, Reclining is a doubled-ended finger, inspired by erotic toys, exploring issues of queer body image. The texture depicts how I interact with my body. The pink hue is reminiscent of flesh, yet feels sickly. The figures are displayed on pillows to reveal their weight and personify them.
