What's the Big Idea - part 4 of 1 2 3 4

by Mike McNamee Published 01/04/2011



This image began with a flippant comment a friend made about the huge amount of money spent every year on beauty products. It's billions! This got me to thinking, 'surely then billions must also be spent on testing said products?' We all have a fair idea of what a testing facility may look like, they are science labs at the end of the day. I merely wanted to portray, visually, what they feel like. I personally believe that art should firstly be about emotion. I hope the image serves to do so.



This is a self portrait. Due to recent events in winning the Societies' award, I have been asked by a lot of people to 'speak' about myself, who I am, where my ideas come from, etc... I simply felt that by representing the answer visually as well as vocally, would give those enquiring minds a better insight into who I am.
