JessicaHarrisonLove these tattooed ladies of refinement created by Edinburgh-based sculptor, Jessica Harrison. The artist uses found ceramics and paints traditional tattoo images of skulls, hearts and daggers on these demure, feminine figures. She explains the juxtaposing as follows:

“Moving beyond a bi-directional model, Harrison proposes a multi-directional and pervasive model of skin as a space in which body and world mingle. Working with this moving space between artist/maker and viewer, she draws on the active body in both making and interpreting sculpture to unravel imaginative touch and proprioceptive sensation in sculptural practice. In this way, Harrison re-describes the body in sculpture through the skin, offering an alternative way of thinking about the body beyond a binary tradition of inside and outside.”
