Crucifixion

Went to the Tate today, and discovered Hermann Nitsch a fabulous painter/performance artist from Vienna.

i would ideally bring ‘life’ back to the Crime Scene painting. The original image being 3d, then photographed back to 2d. i see these bodies of Ed geins victims as artwork of sorts. Making them into costumes for him to dress up as (performance art) and then the photographs themselves, a piece of artwork? i have been writing a bit of if crime scene/autopsy photographs can indeed be deemed as artwork, and if so can these be exhibited as such?
I need to find a medium i am happy to work with that will create texture and a 3d quality to the painting. Impasto technique of using a knife to spread the paint around, but i feel this will be expensive, and would prefer to use a cheaper ‘base’ alternative, to which i can paint on top.

Fell down and broke Diana mini (only the strap connection but still… :>(
