Joanne Murray, 27, Glasgow. My work explores elements of the body, materiality, restriction and being bound. Sculptures like bodies of flesh, I am constantly asking how far I can push my work away from realism. Underpinning the work are consistent themes and ideas relating to feminism. With my sculptural work I aim to use different materials to try to draw attention to the suffocating ideologies placed on women, wrapping sculptures tightly in string or tape. Forms of flesh being cut into, restrained and manipulated by limiting ideologies, revealing cutting marks and lines left behind.
