Chromira photograph, Microcrystalline wax and Perspex

50 x 38 x 2cm

Peta’s work explores the themes of impermanence, transience, temporality, mutability and the corporeal and subjective limits of the human body. Her photographic practice veers away from the two dimensional limitations to embrace photography’s expanded field, with interventions such as piercing, crumpling, creasing and embedding it in wax.
