Visual artist and fashion practitioner interested in creative compliance within the interdisciplinary dialogue of human psyche. Discerning the on body/from the body site of carnal investigation, committing to a dialogue of theoretical study and creative outburst.
Establishing a starting point in an innermost exploration of self history and worldliness, what draws my attention is the unembellished, the painful, and the crude seized in a perceptible poetic outcome. In the context of fashion, my foremost interest lies in deconstructing my own established boundaries. Relying upon self-reflection, I put myself out there studying shapes within the mind, acknowledging a new form of dialogue. Not inherently congenial for me or those who read my work, the process itself is the ultimate form of my practice.
Conditioning an empathy for what stings the most, I create elegies for the confounded - series of pictorial experimentation and graphic human vulnerability.
Chronicles of an ever-changing dialogue, permeating wordliness within discernible statutory scenes. Relying on the grotesque interpretation of human intimacy, I narrate a performance of flesh and undisclosed actuality.
"A monstrous unleashing of appetites, a liberation of the basest instincts, a crackling of burnt lives prematurely exposed to the flame." - Antonin Artaud
Fashion existing at it's own margins.
A metamorphosis in it's presentation built on a new conceptual approach with correspondingly more vivid articulations of identity, angst and alienation, joy and despair, pleasure and change. An imagery exhibiting the depths of being: existing in a body creates a definite space for inner exploration, the dress that covers this body embeds all it's capabilities and limits, for that matter. A matter of physicality and sensation: borders of the living.
Being part of a larger historical and philosophical shift, underlying assumptions of dress and clothing have always followed contemporaneity, technology and information. As it is not defined by an utilitarian overlay, conceptually as well as aesthetically complex and exploratory, fashion design addresses modern anxieties and conjectures about identity and the flesh. Fashion has always been a discourse, perhaps not always in a deliberate or intentional way, however it speaks what we are, were, might be and could become: threading fragments and traces of the fugitive and real self.
Perhaps, as a creative practitioner myself, the aspects that deserve more emphasis and concentration are the provocation of research and reshaping the outcome of this complex practice as it would contribute to a wider creative dialogue, communicating more sincere and profounder viewpoints, conducting to newer means of production, shaping what and how we perceive the art of dressing, most importantly how we define it. Because it is precisely through the body as the main canvas for this exploration and communication, the ever changing site that dictates the pin-point of moving forward, steadily and inquisitive give better connotations to this discipline in our contemporary context.
