Freaks icons – 2012-2015.
Portraits of performers from the last century circuses, the then so-called freaks. Portrayed as icons in rich colours, fabrics and embroidery, the images based on the old circus posters, making them god-like, transforming their disabilities into super-powers.
Silkscreen print on fabric, worked over with painting, application and embroidery.
Of each portrait there is a red and flowery (background) version.
A couple of Freak Icons were also used in the installation ‘A stroll in the park’ at ‘Graphics & beyond’, 2012.
