Working on my latest edit. Really excited about this one! 
Hush by VictoriaGugenheim
New Page:…

Photographer,concept, makeup, bodyart, nails, post and model: Victoria Gugenheim

There's something delicious about the evil queen archetype. I wanted to go into it a little and give it a queer edge, maybe even something adrogynous or bowie-esque, with a neon fantasy twist. Mixing neon colours with darkness is a real love of mine; the contrast can be very powerful when used correctly. The patterns around the edges are a mixture of smoke and fractals around the neckline, culminating in lava drops bouncing off of the neck to convey movement and power.
Immortal Enemies by VictoriaGugenheim
Immortal Enemies


Created for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and featuring the amazing Sean Jones, this details breast cancer and how it spreads, using detailed photographs from electron microscopy as reference in order to keep as much detail and accuracy as possible. The pink cells are breast cancer cells that are in the act of replicating, the orange ones are extending in order to attempt to metastasize. Only a portion of his body is showing as the cancer consumes the host, and I wanted to pay testament to how this bodily event can take away people's sense of wholeness and identity and in some cases of survivors, actual parts of their bodies.
The composition is meant to be read as the cells attempting to cooperate to form an attack, but the Pink Ribbon is in the middle, warding off the spread of the cancer and for the purposes of this composition, effectively preventing the cancer cells from communicating with one another.
I used some complimentary colour schemes around the edges to convey the frenetic movement of the cancer cells and how rapidly they can spread and overcome the host, adding some beauty to something that's deadly. If anything, I hope this piece teaches people to treat cancer seriously and to treat the natural world around us with awe and respect for how quickly the equilibrium of even our bodies can be turned against us.

50% of the profits of this piece sold will be going to Sean's preferred breast cancer charity. Art has the capacity to help the world; this is just a small nod to what it can do.

Hello lovelies

Firstly, I apologise for my absence here- lots going on!

My page sadly over on facebook, was reported and banned as pornography- with no explanation given by fb. I'd like to invite all my friends over to my new page, over at:…

So far, the facebook war on bodypainting has seen even multiple world champions being banned, despite pornographic magazines being able to sell their wares unharmed.

I'd like to reconnect with all the friends I've lost, and also help fight the facebook war on bodypainting with my new page! Art is not porn!
