The Shaping

Karyn Fearnside

My work explores the link I feel towards my mother through my daughters, I have two red headed girls and my mum was one of two red headed daughters. I have been exploring the thinness of the veil separating the living from the dead using plaster casts of faces, (life masks!) my own, my daughter and my partner, one daughter upon seeing the process has refused to be of assistance..

With these I have created tissue paper masks and three bodies of work for this exhibition.

Lastly I made two sets of wings out of the tissue paper masks. I photographed my daughters with them and call this series Genetic Inheritance some of what we inherit lifts us up, some does not.

I invite the public to enter a competition by taking their own photos with the wings and uploading them on Instagram with the hash tags #maskwingsart and #formstudioandgallery to be in the running to win one of my prints.
