Australian artist Paul White uses his sewing machine to make obsessively crafted drawings and objects which explore gender and vulnerability.
In his latest body of work, White sews a series of scar drawings based on designs for children's temporary tattoos. These garish and gory images pinned to the wall like stretched skins use dress making material in a wholly unexpected manner while addressing goofy horror film depictions of the body.
Paul White is currently a MFA candidate at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA . He is the recipient of an Australian Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarship
