Body

        PROJECTS CONSTRUCTED ABSTRACT BLACK & WHITE COLOUR STATEMENT

There is a continuing fascination with exploring and interpreting the material body, it's properties and form.

A photograph can record a body’s outward appearance but I wanted to show more.  To give an indication of the body's history through

the marks left, as well as to give a hint of what lies beneath the surface.  It's as if the inside has now become partially visible,

appearing almost like a tattoo.

I want to reinterpret the body image, to give it a broader identity than that which the media forces us to see.
