'Entities' Derived from the ornamentation as well as its “free form”essence as simply a piece of cloth, this collection of work investigates the figure and the vacancy of human presence as a purposely arranged garment. By playing with light and shadows, the piled piece of fabric transforms a mundane item into a sculptural entity. The small sample of fabric belongs to something larger, something more, something left unknown; it is a moment captured, never to be ‘that’ again. I use photography as a preliminary tool for referencing the subject, but the fabric is also referred to for colour matching, which creates the most accurate depiction of the fabric itself. I'm always captivated by the pattern and colour changes that occur within the folds, and the often challenging details that transpire within, capturing the fabric through photography creates excitement and foreshadows the possibilities. The unique combination of mediums; coloured pencil on wood, adds an additional element of detail by leaving the beauty of the raw wood exposed. The delicacy of the fabric creates a feminine sensibility, and a minimalist center focus creates a sense of vulnerability amongst the singular entity. These entities are distinct, independent and self-contained beings.
