Artist's Description

Image sold at exhibition (best viewed large)

…From scars to stars unfurled through the night
protection from harm in the north and the south
my dragon protects me
to fight
for my right
tonight! …

Dragon, symbolised freedom after divorce. Words from Iraq ‘to protect and guard’. Homesick, the Southern Cross is a place to focus. From mental anguish to serenity turn my scars to stars (Victoria: London, Butch: USA, Devlyn, Dayne: Adelaide)

inkedup! – Adelaide South Australia, digital art exhibition November 1st – 29th 2008

For this exhibition all images have been printed on canvas, with the images sealed for protection and stretched to frames of 35×28cm.

The exhibition takes tattoos as a starting point. These days tattoos are a part of mainstream culture, part of our landscape, ive taken them and put them back into the landscape, the way i see it anyway. The people who gave me the use of their tattoos for this exhibition all showed that the tattoos they wear are more than just skin deep, they resonate inside, they are often times the face of our totems. Some times they are our masks

The exhibition is part of the south australian gay and lesbian FEAST festival in november. to be held in stirling, adelaide hills at the stirling organic market and cafe. I hope you enjoy……
