Visual Biography of a Chef at the Bendigo Hotel, 2017
2 layer lino print on Japanese Mulberry paper
28 cm x 19 cm
$180 unframed

By translating ideas into motifs of “criminal tattoos”, in this piece I have communicated a biographical narrative of a “20 something’s” life working as a chef at the Bendigo hotel in Collingwood.
Layering the imagined hand tattoos over a map of Melbourne’s inner North gives a sense of place to the story.
Using a linocut technique I pay homage to the method of tattooing; carving images into the skin and recording ideas in ink. The Japanese Mulberry Paper references weathered hardworking skin.
