Scab Ring Oxidised Silver

Teresa Lee

Lee’s work draws from the complexities and imperfections of the human body and it’s existence. Scabs are healing growths produced by the body, and could be considered ornaments themselves. These flawed, organic adornments have a story behind them, and like jewellery, scabs give an insight into the wearer and their experience.

The characteristics of a wound are unique, in the sense that no two are created the same. Lee strives to evoke curiosity and discussion from her works through tangible bodily traumas. By using exaggerated contours and precious materials, she emphasises a beauty that is disregarded in what is usually considered ugly or macabre.
