An experiment in wet-on-wet using acrylics. Starting from self portraits, the canvas is spun allowing the paint to serendipitously move across the canvas. Built up over several months, the resulting portraits became monstrous, imitating rended or atrophied flesh. Coinciding with a gallery show celebrating Mary Shelly's 'Frankenstein', the paintings were submitted and accepted for the event at Bournemouth's Natural Science Society.

Featured at Bournemouth Natural Science Society's show - '1816. Frankenstein' 2011
