Mascara vs Peril

by Michelle

The image is by Daniel Lee. Design by Owen Leong, whose work is on show this month at the Depot Gallery, 2 Danks Street, Waterloo as part of the Anna Pappas Gallery’s exhibit. Owen’s work explores how race, colour and gender mark and transform the body, and the ways in which physicality is culturally framed.

I wasn’t too sure about this image at first, it seems so at odds with Mascara’s profile but I’m finding it dramatic and confronting and futuristic…looking forward to meeting the Peril camp tomorrow night in the Asialink HQ.

I have these fab boots to wear, D & G’s I bought on sale in Castlereagh St after a somewhat costly trip to the dentist a few weeks back. They are brown, mid-calf length with the subtlest of gold heels. However, it’s not a nightclub is it? It’s just a poetry reading I’m going to for god’s sake…
