Metamorphosis - self portrait on the 23rd day
125cmh x 125w
Inspired by a 'rhythm of life' theme. The kitchen dog represents my monthly 'dog of a day'. She cannot escape as she has been lassooed by the vacuum cleaner. Juxtaposed is the absurd idealisation of domesticity emblazoned on the yellow dishcloths (difficult to see in these photos, they are dancing ballerinas, as on the corner blocks - click to enlarge). A daily diary, embroidered on the contraceptive pills, gives a real picture of my life. A mood graph goes off the scale on the 23rd day, and the 23rd ballerina is peeled back like a chrysalis skin.
