Influenced by Haute Couture, a fascination of body decoration as expression of identity and communication, leads me to continually explore this vast landscape through portrait images. The bespoke dress is created from carbon, charcoal, acrylic washes and hand-cut cotton rag - heavy 300gsm textured paper.
The Original: Collage work with its’ bespoke design of fabric, carbon, acrylic and foil create a rich surface which results in depth and texture. The ragged edges in some areas produced by tearing coloured images create movement.
The original collage work has been finely scanned and is available now as an Archival Pigment Print in four sizes, on beautiful cotton ragg heavy 300gsm Hahnemühle textured paper, unframed.
