For #Five2Watch this week we've selected five artists who explore the body as part of their practice: Paul Hazelton, Carla Cuomo, Robyn LeRoy-Evans, Gordon and Mary and Natalie Ramus
Body Hair: Existention, 2013
Created from geometrically woven human hair, 'Body Hair' is a work that continues my interest in creating three-dimensional drawing using, in this case, a geometric pattern first observed in a simpler form in 1980 during a sunset over the sea in Margate. When I drew the pattern later that evening I had inadvertently drawn the proportions of a human form.
This work is in the permanent collection of the Olbricht Foundation, ME Collectors Room, Berlin
Variation On the Body, No.02 (Untitled Sequence, London 2018), 2018
This is a work in progress where I employ my own body to produce a series of emblematic works addressing issues of sexuality, mysticism and the nature of female desire. This first series looks at how the body registers, occupies and defines the space while incorporating personal and found objects that recall element taken form rituals, shamanism, and alternate state process.
The use of the body here is often fragmented or partially obscured, but still employed as a recurring presence
Body Sculpture, 2014

Crying Into Her Body, 2012
[INstitutional] BODY: DE(con)STRUCTION, 2016
[INstitutional] BODY: DE(con)STRUCTION is a performance to camera of the removal of the work, [INstituional] BODY. DE(con)STRUCTION documents the dialogue between my body and the tape in the realisation that it is time for us both to leave the institution- my time here is done.
