Artist’s Statement: “Sanguine, a paper cut, is part of a series of Humours made in 2020-2021. The theory of the Four Humours was developed by Hippocrates, as he believed that the human body was made up of four components. These 4 Humours needed to be regulated and balanced for people to remain healthy. Four Humours were liquid within the body- blood, phlegm, yellow and black bile. These Humours could also be connected to the 4 seasons, Yellow bile (summer), Black Bile (autumn), Phlegm (winter) and Blood (spring). Sanguine, is a ghost or shapeshifter, hoping to lure the viewer with beauty, wonder and playfulness, but also a “trojan horse” of confrontation and fear.”
