For #Five2Watch this week we've selected five artists who explore desire in their work: Anne Deeming, Andrea Rossi, John Paul Evans, Dawn Woolley and Marcelle Hanselaar
Get Off Your Horse and Drink Your Milk, 2016
Sculpture hanging in Testspace, Spike Island. Made rubber, webbing, silicone and plaster.
The Milking, 2002
A milkmaid as a metaphor for the role of femme fatale and her exacting a sexual toll.
After Rubens - St Sebastian, 2012
‘Stilled Lives’ are a series of self-portraits that reference artworks from western history.
The pinhole photographs need extended exposure, (usually 3-6 minutes) which requires the sitter to perform stasis for this primitive technology.
Remaining still for prolonged periods is reminiscent of the life model’s role, becoming petrified in the temporal drift.
The Substitute (stairwell), 2008
Man and cut-out photograph. Edition of 7.
Beasts 5, 2012
