The boundaries confronting my intuitive approaches are symbolised in the combined physical and perceptual barriers of photography and skin.  Wrinkling, scarring and marking, recording the passing of time as well as physical invasion, trauma and disease, the properties shared by skin and photograph span the physical, medical, cosmetic, even criminal.  My work frequently addresses the disparity between  photographic evidence and the lived experience of the body.   The tough, creased, highly enlarged details of Dermabrasion emphasise the artificiality and obstruction imposed by the photographic medium.  Burning and effacing images of my own scars, Dermarosion rearticulates the separations of the photographic moment through a tactile, physical object occupying its own space.
