/ Exposing the Sequence /
‘Exposing the Sequence' is a series of abstract portraits or nudes: Each work presents the individual through the contents of their wardrobe, exposing a unique blueprint, code or DNA built of common building blocks. It strips its subject bare, allowing others to see an unmediated, holistic picture view.
/ Project Wardrobe /
'Project Wardrobe™ explores the notion of identity through apparel. But rather than style or trend, it seeks to distil and deconstruct the complexity of self-expression into an almost socialistic notion of clothing comprising timeless building blocks common to all, but quietly unique to each individual. A point made more profound by the increasingly globalised and homogeonised nature of contemporary culture.
The work also seeks to reveal the extent to which we each consume, hoard and focus on constructing our self-image. Ultimately, it allows others to look for patterns, reflect on their own clothing and its role in their identity and even prompt comparative judgement, or awe, about personal consumption and the material culture prevalent in modern society.
