Viewing single post of blog Perfume as Practice

My perfumed self portrait is complete and currently nestled between 15 other works in an exhibition curated and devised by myself and artist Sharon Mossbeck entitled Alternative Portraits

The aim of Alternative Portraits is to both investigate and celebrate innovative depictions of portraits, as well as provide a platform for artists who approach portraiture in a fresh and challenging way.

My perfumed self portrait captures the essence of my artist persona, and again highlights the capacity scent has for portraiture and, by extension, contemporary art. This alternative way assessing and responding to scent hopefully informs our knowledge of what scent can be, but either way it certainly befits the exhibition it is currently in: Alternative Portraits represents artists from around the UK and is open at Access Space, Sheffield, until 4th October.
