Robin Lynch's Performance at the I Love You Vernissage

In case you missed the prelude on the gallery website, here's was was written there about the performance art piece at last week's vernissage:

Red explores the passion of getting lost in an addiction, becoming obsessive to the point of transformation. Red being the colour of lust, anger, passion, destruction and the passageway to womanhood. The power of all of these can be like a flood, overwhelming all our usual senses leading to destructive behaviour and obsession.

The audience will watch my transformation and struggle from pure white to blood red. It will be a process of shy immersion in red followed by cleansing; leading to a more violent and wild battle between the two colours, and finally ending with all the glory and mess of Red.
