Holding it all in

Vaune Mason

4 February - 2 March 2013

Mixed media - including antique kid skin coat, goat bones, crab and crayfish shells, found dried insects, gold leaf and Swarovski crystals.

I am interested in the preciousness of things that seem very unremarkabl In my eyes animal and insect remnants, passed over as ultra ordinary or just debris, have unique value. I can compare our sense of self importance - the value we place on our human state - with the fragility of our bodies, the flesh and bones we leave behind like any other animal.
