These works explore themes of fashion in an investigation of the role clothing plays in conveying identity. Fashion is self-expression and self-invention and can be a way to challenge societal boundaries. It is a tool to either cultivate a peer group or differentiate ourselves and reflects the human need to be visible. Working from live models, I created the drawings that became the inspiration behind these mixed media pieces. The layering of various collaged elements onto the paintings helped to create energetic works that hint at abstraction.
