Pattern made with glue and then covered in salt.
Salted mold made from covering my lips in glue and dipping them in salt then allowing to dry and applying it to painted burlap. The top piece (bottom lip) is facing up with the salted side exposed and the bottom piece (upper lip) is facing down with the mod exposed.
"I draw confessions. Things I can’t or won’t say out loud find a voice on paper in the form of anamorphic avatars. A bit of a wanderer, my work has influences from living in the north, on the west coast, New York and Montreal. Horse headed women cavort with wasps that carry human teeth, while disembodied hands engage in an intimate clasping of beak and tongue, inviting the viewer to taste, to touch, to feel." - source is Lost At E Minor.

"Gelah Penn is exhibiting an installation entitled “Detour” at Kentler International Drawing Space in Brooklyn. She uses various wire meshes and objects in a web-like creation that climbs the gallery’s walls sporting small hives constructed by winding wire tightly around itself providing focal points in the entanglement.
