Notes


About 

 

Justine Hounam from London, UK is a mixed-media visual artist whose series of abstract body landscape paintings represent a physical, psychological, and metaphorical skin. Justine is interested in the connection between us, our homes, and the objects within which contain memories of body and identity. Justine paints onto fabric, stretched and secured over found parts or whole furniture. Once removed, akin to a skin pulled from its body, the fabric reveals the outline of the object entombed within. 

  

The contours, cracks and ageing of the furniture are embedded within the paint much like a cast or a print. Often the furniture is displaced, broken or rearranged suggesting conflict/trauma associated violence inside the home. Justine is also interested in the wider use of conflict. Her paintings can be seen as a series of territories viewed from above, flattened and revealed. Justine uses the personal and the domestic environment as a backdrop to question wider notions of society and politics. Hanging on the wall, the paintings are a hybrid of painting and sculpture, a conflict between the two disciplines. Justine’s fascination in form and material stems from her background in architecture and pushes her desire to develop and push the boundaries of techniques of making to produce work. 

  

The materiality of the objects is integral, as they contain memories, subjectivity and personal space, whilst also having the unique ability to display the erosion of time and experience, which get imprinted onto cloth. Hounam sees the material and its idiosyncrasies as symbolic metaphor of skin and scar tissue.
