Society places an exaggerated emphasis on women’s skins, judging the value of the lives we live within them by the colour and condition of our surfaces. How Deep Is Your Love? explores an alternative visualisation of a woman’s living body—without recourse to its surface—that I began with The Ghost Artist.

This project will eventually become ten paintings that will accumulate into a body of ten stand-in parts. Surfaces of immediate daily touch will become the bearers of the intimate world beneath our skins, the world of sensing, not of being seen. A series of experiments on marble paper will accompany the ten-part work.
