THROUGH THE SECOND SKIN

 Ongoing series started 2017

“Through The Second Skin” takes the cocoon that we create around us to protect ourselves from the increasingly chaotic world and makes it tangible.

Nude models wrap themselves in fabrics of varying opacity and contort themselves to create dramatic forms with the material that at times reads as pure amorphous energy and others as intimately human.

Sometimes we can only see glimpses of a figure as one of their body parts stretches against the fabric, while others the material is so translucent we can see the emotions in their eyes. As a series, it is a depiction of the journey one takes to break free from that self-imposed solitary confinement to join the world again.
