Image for Silvering




Taking place entirely in a bathroom, Silvering sees a ritualistic evening of 'self-care' spiral into claustrophobic self-scrutiny when a woman discovers a grey hair. Drawing on horror tropes and intersecting the analogue and digital by using skin-like paper textures alongside naïve illustrations, Silvering explores the mundanities, absurdities and potential horrors of ageing and the anxieties surrounding it.
