SOME STRANGE NEW ADDITIONS TO THE CLAY ZOO

I am currently on an MA Art in Science course at Liverpool John Moores Uni. and have been spending,some of my time exploring the antibacterial surfaces of amphibians and sharks.  This work has been a wonderful development to my earlier activities with memorialising disease.

 

These and many more will all be on show in the John Lennon Art & Design building in Liverpool on Liverpool Light Night 17 May 2019. You will also be able to see Antibacterial Avengers cartoon films and draw your own cartoons.
