“This print is part of the body of works entitled [see through] created for Bleur’s [INSERT FEELING HERE] immersive art exhibition.
5 new works on paper suspended as an installation inviting the audience to see through the artwork. The original piece had an aperture cut out creating a view finder to the artwork beyond, suggesting a narrative between the works. A series that you can literally see through. The fragility/tangibility/proximity of the suspended works on paper reflecting a new tangibility, experiential way of ‘seeing’ artwork and process. Each piece becomes an emotion, as the series explores the tension between the head and the heart, between choice and action.
Each print reflects on one of the five elements and suggests a choice we make as humans in our environment. They ask the viewer to see through the role of the fashion illustrator, to situate clothes in the context and the environment from which they were made. And to simultaneously feel the literal and metaphorical landscapes of the artist’s process – deconstructed to five layers.
This is air.”
‘Orlando’ by Virginia Woolf:
“clothes… change our view of the world and the world’s view of us”
