At the start of term there was a college trip to the Newlyn art gallery, which was hosting an exhibition of inspirational miscellanea at the time. There was one exhibit that really inspired me; a series of (real) insects encased in little cylinders of clear resin, they had their heads replaced with tiny, stylised human heads made of white clay, and were called Reject Units. I feel terrible for forgetting the artist's name. . . :C
I'd love to make some sort of series based around them, as it found it to be a wonderful and inspirationally evocative visual device.
I tried to make the face androgynous, but I don't know why I made it so mask-like, it just seemed right at the time.
