Road to Athens #3 – Leviathan

Lost within the expanse of the sea; maddened flesh now carrion and hands clenched to the last of my sanity. Yet a light emerges and, consumed with hope, I travel towards it.

What I find is not light, but fire and smoke pouring from the doors of Leviathan’s mouth. A creature formidable in both strength and grace. Nothing on earth could be it’s equal; without fear, without weakness.

Yet it spoke to me with gentle words and in its glistening wake the sea became a pot of ointment. 


Leviathan constitutes 1 artefact of 6 that I will display in a group exhibition at Platforms Project 2017 in Athens from 20th – 25th May 2017 alongside other members of Soup Collective International (SCI)

Perfume Portrait #24 – Lizzy Alageswaran

Lizzy Alageswaran 50ml EDT Lizzy Alageswaran 50ml EDT


Using the boundless beauty of the sea to act as a metaphor for happiness and energy, this fragrance perfectly expresses the innate joy of creating and champions a strong sense of self.


A confident and restorative fragrance that allows you to take pride in your creative convictions. Orange, geranium and clove exude happiness, and this is supported by the inner peace offered by sandalwood, creative alertness offered by bergamot and mental stimulation offered by lavender.

This fragrance was created by interpreting and investigating a response to the question ‘Why do you make art?’ If you are an artist (in the broadest sense of the word) I would love to her your response to the question too, as it will enable me to create a perfume portrait that captures the essence of your creative persona.

This perfume will be on display at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, from 2-18th March 2016. There will be a Private View on the 2nd March from 6-8pm. More details
