Drawing: Wire and Skin

Sunday, February 05, 2017

Really am not keeping up with this New Years resolution stuff am I? Hehe, anyway I'm back with some of my most recent work. I have to say I have been busy, but yet again haven't been active enough on here, so for that I apologise!

So this is some of my latest photography/ drawing work for my garment project. As of now I have actually submitted this project and am actually just getting round to blogging about it, but I will update you on my mark when I post a round up of this modules work.

You are probably wondering what this work is about? Well, as mentioned in a recent post on my shower photography, I was working on a drawing project titled 'Garment'. I wanted to focus on an unusual style of drawing (it being a project focused on drawing) so decided to explore into the realm of wire drawing, and developing on from that, wearable wire drawings.

I did do them on both men and women focusing on a corset and button up shirt. The metallic quality of the drawings represents to entrapment and constrictive qualities the solid clothing has. Regular clothing is a lot more enclosing than we can come to realise and this represents the struggle to hide the shame of nudity against the destructive and harsh effects the clothing can have on the body (tight, pressing, constricting and chaffing).

I used dark backgrounds so the wire disappears into the black. I am using these photographs as the drawings themselves, with the bodies as the 'white of the paper'. I feel there is so much potential for this work, and that I just need to push this idea forward. I definitely want to bring this idea into my next module, which I have been given so better get cracking ;)

I have a few posts lined up so stay tuned, and bye bye for now!

  2. I'm absolutely in love with this idea - truly creative. And I love the message behind it, the juxtaposition between nudity and clothes and its purpose!
