PERFORMPRINT- A live event of extreme printmaking exploring masculinity through the possibilities of print and performance.
As part of the PERFORMPRINT event held at the Fremantle Arts Centre (September 22, 2012), experimental outfit Masonik and surf thrash band Beer Fridge were invited to be part of a musical cacophony in which the two bands competed by playing concurrently in an all out battle of noise.

PERFORMPRINT was developed through an artist residency at Fremantle Arts Centre

I use the digital monitor as my mirror while also performing acts of narcissism/ vanity and truth.
My collaborator Adam Paul paints my portrait directly onto my face in drag-queen style. Issues of gender and our obsession with beauty are challenged.
