Foxglove, Wolfsbane, Cerbera Odollam, and Belladonna (x) | 2014

Part of the Poisons series

Each napkin features an intricately hand embroidered illustration of a flower which, if in one’s meal rather than decorating one’s serviette, would kill the consumer. These are part of an ongoing project that aims to juxtapose items from within the delicate feminine sphere- embroidered flowers, napkins suitable for a sit down dinner- with deadly poison, playing with femininity that becomes fatal within its own, outwardly dainty parameters.

Stonehenge, 2014

Because when we told my friend Stonehenge was an old train station she believed us for months, until 20 minutes before we actually got there. She was disappointed she wouldn’t really be able to play train conductor, and we felt bad.

Polished, 2014 (x)

Polished is a would-be self portrait, acknowledging the part of me that wants to intentionally construct a facade of refined, socially approved femininity. It’s compulsive in nature and generally kept under wraps, but if given free reign, it would use hairspray and probably aim to marry rich.
