Multiple techniques have been used to create this complex print.
and combines all the following print processes:-
Photogravure/Monoprint/ghost print/chine colle.

When making this body of work I was thinking about the relationship we have with our bodies and how some people are unable to see their own body as others see them. 

There is an anxiety disorder that causes a person to have a distorted view of how they look and to spend a lot of time worrying about their appearance. 

There are many cases of, what is called, body dysmorphia and it is becoming more prevalent amongst young girls, in particular, who, when bombarded with images of ‘perfect’ bodies online and in the media, regard their own ‘normal’ bodies as imperfect or gross. This print is concerned with a woman/girl's relationship with her breasts - whether they are too big or too small or change through illness, dieting or childbearing.
