'The Beauty of Bricks' 2023
Each Brick is (L)215mm (W)102.5mm (H)65mm
Each brick tile is (L)215mm (W)102.5mm (H)65mm and has a different classical portrait engraved.
Bricks are made to conform to exacting specifications to create uniformity, so engraving them into bricks; references how unattainable beauty standards are etched into our collective consciousness and how this promotes aspiration to a singular aesthetic, a uniformity of perceived ideals. Bricks and tiles link to mass production and the commodification that defines recent history, so they act as a visual metaphor for a distorted image of one size fits all beauty.
