I have always been interested in what we consider to be beautiful and how our relationship with beauty affects us. As a dancer, I am constantly bombarded with gorgeous people and gorgeous bodies so I think that my idea of what is beautiful and how people should look has become distorted. The human body and how it becomes distorted, whether by nature, by accident or by our own minds is a fascinating and I want to explore it visually. Dance has also influenced my concept of space and lines and my work is generally incredibly linear. Using simple mediums, like wires, pens or watercolors allows this linear quality to come through. Distortions of beauty and the relationship between our perceptions of beauty are relatable to almost everyone and are being explored by many artists in the contemporary world. I hope to further my explorations of the human body, how it can be perceived or distorted and our perceptions of beauty.
I am an art student at Maggie Walker and this is the place where I talk about what we're making and what we're learning... Through this I can pour out my heart about my artistic experience.
