ABSTRACTION

Inspired by Tracey Emin's talk at Tate Modern in early 2019 led to the creation of paintings that are as much about the act of creating, as the outcome. 

As this project progressed, it became more about questioning the meanings behind my ideas and exploring a wide range of techniques to achieve an abstracted piece of art. Using the female nude figure stripped down and exposed a vulnerability within my own body. I wanted to abstract the figures in a way that would allow them to still be recognisable in form but cause them to gradually become more and more intertwined with themselves, ultimately being presented as a mound of distorted flesh.
