Ichor, in Greek mythology, is the ethereal fluid that is the god’s blood; said to hold the qualities of the immortal’s food and drink: ambrosia or nectar. Golden in colour, Ichor is considered to be lethally toxic to humans.
This body of work addresses the instability of forms, liquids and materials, their volatility and potential to overspill. ‘Ichor’ adopts narratives that are rooted within mythology – using the malleability of materials to reference and reconsider these concepts. The work asks you to focus on the changing states of matter and the basic characteristics of substances: often using altered or edible materials to convey an instability and fragility within the human condition.
