In the mid 1990s the artist explored contrasting two different elements, flesh and tiles, The Jerked-beef ruin series from 200-2004.
This series of work inspired me because I like the way she combined two things that would not usually be together in this format. The way she's depicted the look of the meat inspired me to experiment with this idea of flesh or meat. When I first saw the work I didn't quite know what to make of it, it interested me in the terms of combining two elements thats are not fit to work with each other but on the other hand it made me feel on the edge because it looks so realistic. It reminds me of the film Silent Hill when the walls start to peel away to expose the dark side of the town. The idea of peeling away to expose what is underneath is a factor that I would like to take forward.
