Modern Nail Art

My stall, Modern Nail Art  features a real nail artist who will paint a classic work of Abstract Expressionism on your fingernail for a small charge.

 

Playing with the idea of the art as commodity, Modern Nail Art combines the crafts of the painter with those of the beautician, bringing us the ultimate, intimate experience of personalised individualism through the popular idea of a “nail bar”

 

 

This piece was shown at Antifreeze. Manchester in 2009 commissioned by Contents May Vary
