Skin has been a strong focus for my practice. My skin is something that is often on my mind as I suffer from eczema, and eczema is when skin is reproducing itself too quickly which causes red patches on the skin. These red patches often make me feel self conscious depending on where they present themselves on my body, as I often feel as though people may see it as a disease and that I need to have better skin to be seen as healthy. Renew is a piece that reflects this feeling, I wanted to convey a sense of need for renewal of my own skin. Renew was made through life casting various parts of my body, and then using latex to create a skin of each life cast. The latex skins were then meticulously hand sewn together in an arbitrary order to represent how my eczema has no order and presents itself randomly on my body.
