The latest work of Tamsin van Essen focuses on "the fragile boundary between attraction and repulsion," in her own words. This idea is visualized through the use of black and white porcelain, which have been layered and sculpted to mimic the look of biological forms -- specifically a parasitic virus in the process of devouring a host.
Dubbed Erosion, many will find it hard to label Tamsin van Essen's series as repulsive. Intricate and abstract, the pieces are works of art that people would proudly display in the home. Granted, it might be a different experience in person. Tamsin va Essen is currently showcasing the Erosion series at the Siobhan Davies Studios in London, England.
