Art Description

Collage: Paper on Paper.

The under layer of the artwork are hand printed Indian circular motives utilising traditional wood blocks from India - they are feminine representing the female form. The top layer is a digitised asymmetrical composition of tailoring patterns printed on the physical original bespoke tailoring patterns and then further cut into which reveals hints of the circular motives. The work references Indian architecture where the women behind the walls can see the world, but they cannot be seen. It's contemporary, mysterious and a metaphor between the body and the architecture we live in. The work is framed in an ornate gold frame.
