‘Hayden’ - engraving on acrylic perspex 

Painting on canvas, sketching in a notebook and inking on a body all fit under the definition of art. My work named after the figure featured, Hayden, has put forward a large amount of commitment and strength to receive all these tattoos, which all have different meanings and stories behind them. His tattoos and his body have been separated to create layers to convey how his tattoos are another layer of his identity and personality. The engraving tool utilised imitates an actual tattoo gun, not inking skin but engraving on Perspex. This encourages viewers to see how permanent tattoos are and how it shows the strength of the person and how important each and every tattoo is to them and who they are.

Was displayed at the Art Gallery of Western Australia for the Year 12 Perspective 2016 and will be displayed at the Moores Building for the 25 Under 25 exhibition from July 14th to July 23rd ~
