Spill paintings

Spill paint­ings
enam­el on glass

Black enam­el spills hide illus­tra­tions, which are paint­ed on the under­side of the glass; these are revealed in a mir­ror which is placed just behind the glass. This opti­cal con­trivance lays bare the act of voyeurism nec­es­sary for view­ing the work in its entire­ty. A loose nar­ra­tive of vio­lence, sex­u­al­i­ty and pueril­i­ty is revealed.
