DOMESTIC BOXING GLOVES
This piece is made from car and bicycle inner tubes, it takes on a mixed gender form and hangs deflated on a bicycle hook. The yellow dusters give it a connection to the home, the twisted form suggests confusion and torture.
Empty Head is made from net curtain fabric, the head was sewn and then stiffened using pva glue. A boxing glove (not shown in this image) hangs from the neck.

RAPE, DECONSTRUCTED CHAIR
The painted bicycle wheel and the latex form a vulva shaped object, these suggest sexual connotations, whilst the poor attempt at knitting leading to a surgical glove suggests an incomplete garment that will never be finished, this piece talks about miscarriage/abortion.
