Anterior


Year of Completion: 2006

Medium: fabric – hand pleated, dyed and painted, metal strapping, acylic resin

Size:  175 cm x 180cm x 60cm

Anterior is a wearable art piece that explores the beauty of the human anatomy. The intricate beauty of the human is often mistaken as grotesque, even when it’s amazing intricate workings are what makes us, us. As an artist that dresses and portrays the body, I feel an intimate knowledge of the mechanics of what we are working with is important and fascinating.  I used a traditional Japanese technique of pleating called shibori to sculpt each piece of muscle and each layer is an anatomical representation of a layer of muscle.
